It is possible to get a second opinion, after you have been advised by a Kansas Work Comp. doctor, of your injury. However, it will likely be a visit you must pay for out of pocket. As we discussed in our yesterday's blog, you may be entitled to a reimbursement, up to $500, for seeing an outside provider. If you have an emergency circumstance you should seek immediate care but, if no urgency exists you should seek the advise of your attorney before getting another opinion.
Sometimes you may strongly disagree with the opinion of the approved provider such that it does require a second opinion. That is particularly the case where you're concerned about care, disability rating, untreated injury, etc. A second opinion matters especially when don't get the treatment you are entitled to, and/or the compensation you should get is low.
