Guarantee The new
law provides that every insurer must employ a California Licensed Physician
and only this physician/medical director can delay, deny, or modify
treatment.This is an important
change in the utilization review procedures because, as of January 1, 2004, adjusters
can no longer delay a decision.In
addition, the response to an authorization request must be delivered within
five working days. Matian Medical can provide not only efficient
and accurate service, but also guarantee the stringent turn around
time mandated by the Labor Code.
