In personal injury, workers’ compensation and medical malpractice cases, the need for an impartial opinion is crucial to both the injured party and the insurer. This is where medical reviewers are needed to provide their unbiased opinions regarding the medical care that is being given or has been given to the patient.
Benefits of an Unbiased Opinion
An unbiased opinion can benefit not only the insurer but also the injured party. A second set of eyes can make sure that appropriate care is being provided to the patient to avoid prolonging an injury that could, in turn, result in increased costs to both the insurer and their client in the form of higher premiums. But most importantly, a medical review helps weed out fraudulent claims and eliminates over-utilization. An independent medical reviewer’s unbiased opinion assists in determining what a fair claims settlement should be for all parties involved on both sides of a personal injury, workers’ compensation or medical malpractice case.
