In some cases, pursuing one’s dental workers’ compensation claim may not be that straightforward. Even with a doctor’s recommendation, certain insurance companies may delay the approval of the treatment. This means that the patient cannot proceed with his or her treatment at the selected dental practice. These individuals may then need to consider out-of-pocket expenses to expedite the treatment process.

What is Workers’ Compensation?
Workers’ compensation policies are designed to pay out monetary benefits to workers who sustained injuries or became disabled in the course of their employment. The North Carolina system requires most employers to carry workers’ compensation insurance if they have three or more employees. Insurance carriers pay medical costs incurred from treating injuries that were a direct result of employment. For example, a construction worker can pursue damages if scaffolding equipment fell on their head at the job site.
