PEORIA, Ill. (PRWEB) February 16, 2022
Workers’ compensation lawyer Todd Strong, the founder of Strong Law Offices in Peoria, Illinois, was recently quoted in an article published in NAOHP addressing access to medical care issues.
The article, “IWP: A Solution for Occupational Health Providers to Offer Medications in Disputed WC Cases”, discusses the challenges injured workers in Illinois face in obtaining quality medical care when their work injury claims are delayed or denied.
“IWP is a fantastic equalizer and champion for the injured worker. They provide access to quality pharmaceutical products for the injured worker who has been wrongfully denied or delayed when the injured worker is most vulnerable to insurance company tactics,” according to Todd Strong.
The workers’ compensation lawyers at Strong Law Offices have a long history of advocating for injured workers in Illinois.
According to Mr. Strong, “Insurance companies fight, deny and delay access to Medical Care at every step in an injury case. Our office works with our clients to assess and understand their medical needs. We assist our clients in locating medical providers, such as online pharmacies, that are willing to extend medical care on credit, knowing that the litigation process takes time. Medical providers who are familiar with the Worker’s Compensation laws and procedures know in advance that the insurance companies actively practice polices of unfairness and delay. Insurance Carriers hope to shift costs to the taxpayers through Medicare/Medicaid, or even other group health insurance companies, despite knowing and accepting individual responsibility for the wrongs of their insureds. We fight hard to help our clients navigate this difficult system of “Stall and Delay” tactics. Knowing and understanding the needs of clients and also medical providers is important in establishing those connections to ultimately achieve a more successful outcome for injury victims.”
