Why Do I Have to Continue Treatment During the Life of My Workers' Comp Case?

The only way to continue to receive weekly wage benefits is to provide proof that you are unable to work due to the work related injury that made you stop working in the first place.  So, if you do not continue treating and seeing your doctor, you do not have proof of a continued disability and you do not receive benefits.  The law now requires that you show evidence of a continuing disability at least every 90 days in order to continue to be entitled to wage benefits.
