    How do I obtain Medical Treatment?

    Wednesday 2nd Aug 2017

    The Louisiana Workers’ Compensation Act requires Employers to authorize and pay for any emergency treatment if you are injured in the course and scope of your employment. Following your initial treatment, the Employer or its insurer is responsible for authorizing you to follow up with a physician of your choice in any field or specialty that you need. The Employer or its insurer must then authorize all related medical treatment, so long as the treatment complies with the Louisiana Medical Treatment Guidelines. By law, all medical treatment should be authorized and/or paid within 60 days from date the Employer received written notice thereof.
