What does an injured worker do when they have no insurance and need surgery?

This is one of the toughest questions for a lawyer to answer because there is no easy solution. If the workers' compensation insurance carrier is denying your medical care related to the work injury, the case will have to be litigated and a Judge's Decision will have to be issued. This can take up to 18 months. An option like this is difficult to accept but it is also the reality for a large number of injured workers. Cobra benefits can be expensive and given the fact that the injured worker is out of work, it may be too financially burdensome. There is state-funded Adult Insurance Plan which is a welfare based medical insurance. However, the DPW insurance is difficult to get and not a lot of medical practices accept this. So, what options are left? There are certain doctors in Pennsylvania that understand the complexities of workers' compensation based medicine. At Krasno Krasno & Onwudinjo, we work with dozens of physicians and rehabilitation centers that recognize the plight of injured workers. Many of these medical practices will see an injured worker for an evaluation and/or even agree to perform surgery or rehabilitation without insurance. If you are in the situation I am describing and need help, call Jason Krasno at Krasno Krasno and Onwudinjo or visit or email him at jkrasno
