CNA’s Deadly Paper Games, Just another CNA DBA Suicide in the making

Posted by defensebaseactcomp on June 21, 2012

It is certainly going to have the desired result. 

They are going to kill him and it is going to be soon. 

Before the year is out I believe this man is going to commit suicide.

PTSD Claims to be Expedited

CNA’s Deadly Paper Games do not begin or end with this Injured War  Zone Contractor

Nearly 14 months to the day of a Department of Labor District Director signing an Order approved by an ALJ stating that CNA must provide medical for a  severely Injured War Zone Contractor’s injuries, the details of which were gagged…..

And 3 1/2 months after Injured War Zone Contractor asked the District Director to find them in Default for not doing so……..

CNA produces a stack of  FAXES supposedly sent to Injured War Zone Contractors Doctors stating that they have “re-approved” payment of diagnoses and treatment, most of which were never approved, ever, much less “re- approved”.  In fact for most of the Doctors CNA denied diagnoses and treatment for blast injuries for many years.

Several Doctors stated that yes they received a FAX but that it did not mean they accepted the approval and that it did not guarantee payment.  Payment would have to made in advance.  CNA’s reputation for non payment is no secret.

The rest of the doctors state that they never received “approval” at all.

Unemployed and otherwise uninsured Injured War Zone Contractor pays for some visits via credit card as they are so vital.  Doctor then sends a bill to CNA for payment despite not having received an approval,  which CNA refuses.  Injured War Zone Contractors scheduled visits are then cancelled due to non payment by CNA.

These are deadly games CNA plays in order to continue to deny medical even after a hard won order is produced.

And who do they claim is vague, ambiguous, and whose claims are not supported by Facts, or should we say FAX?

It must be the very well respected and credentialed doctors, or the Attorney, or the Injured War Zone Contractor

This negligent paper game continues despite a recent medical report from February stating:

“I do not understand the entire bureaucracy issue.  He tells me that CNA has written to us and that we are approved for Workers’ Compensation.  We have no record to that effect.  We are just not going to be paid and they are not going to authorize treatment.  Bureaucracies have their problems but this almost seems to be purposeful.

It is certainly going to have the desired result.  They are going to kill him and it is going to be soon.  Before the year is out I believe this man is going to commit suicide.

And he’ll be just another CNA DBA Suicide.

Note:   CNA’s response is to ask for an informal conference.  Several informal conferences, a settlement conference with a Judge, orders signed by a Judge and the District Director, and yet another informal conference after an 18 month default is even a consideration???  Let’s just run this out until the end of year and we won’t have to worry about this guy anyway!!!!

    Alright, I worked in a doctors officeand we never sent out billings that would get there on a Friday, (or they’d find file 13), and we’d break up our batches of claims. If we sent too many together they’d disappear. It was amazing. This was State comp. I can only imagine the games have gotten a lot more interesting. Since CNA can’t get their act together, there should be a third party that steps in to deal with their claims department. This should be someone appointed by the court. These insurance companies think they are above the law and above the judges orders. If they can’t find responsible people that can do their job, well again, that is on them, the insurance companies. Every time you call, get the person’s name, write it down in a little note pad that you have just for them. Document EVERYTHING! Ask your doctor for copies of these faxes, send a copy to your attorney and to the judges office. Be sure to keep one for yourself. If this is too stressful for you, which i totally understand, have a friend or a loved one do this for you. We shouldn’t have to go to this extreme, it’s their job to take care of those claims. I hate to say this but we have to defeat them at their own game. So my message to you CNA, pay those darn claims!
