Another Commonwealth Court Victory By Attorney Dan Siegel Affirms That Medical Providers Have a Right to Payment Under the Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act
The Commonwealth Court has affirmed on August 7, 2019 that insurance companies and their attorneys may not take actions that prevent medical providers from being paid for care for injured workers. The decision, in Workers First Pharmacy Services, LLC v. Bureau of Workers’ Compensation Fee Review Hearing Office (Cincinnati Insurance Co.), disallowed a procedure used by an insurer and its counsel intended to prevent a pharmacy not only from being paid, but also from having a hearing about its right to payment. “I am proud that this case, and others my office has handled, have expanded the rights of every medical professional in Pennsylvania. My firm’s recent cases have extended the rights of more injured persons and their medical providers than any other firm’s,” said Siegel, founder of the Law Offices of Daniel J. Siegel, LLC. He also credited attorneys Christa Frank High and Nicole A. Kratzer, who also handled the case. Click here to read the decision authored by President Judge Leavitt.
