Consult a Personal Injury Attorney When Assistance Needed
Video Transcribed: Should you sign the medical authorization given to you by the insurance company? Hey everyone, Christopher Stevens here certified paralegal with the Wirth Law Firm in Tulsa, Oklahoma, working in personal injury in Oklahoma. Now, today we’re going to be discussing whether or not you should sign the medical authorization that was given to you by the insurance company.
Now, a lot of the time the adjuster will say, “Hey, it’s an easy way for us to get your medical records in, and it should just help expedite the process for us paying your medical bills.” Well, if you were to examine that medical authorization a bit more closely, odds are it’s going to be what’s called an unlimited medical authorization.
That means there is no start point and endpoint for the medical authorization and they can then go back and get your medical records all the way to the date that you were born. So that is one thing you should always keep an eye out for any time that you’re given any kind of authorization to sign from an insurance company.
