When do CNA’s Deadly Paper Games become outright lies to Department of Labor?
Posted by defensebaseactcomp on July 19, 2012
How about now DOL ????
Documents showed that CNA reported the highest profits margins, taking in nearly 50 percent more in premiums than it paid out in benefits.
After having defaulted on an Order to provide medical to an Injured War Zone Contractor for over 15 months, after denying for six years prior, CNA provides a computer printout to the Department of Labor Claims Examiner who was charged with investigating this Default.
Not to give undue credit here, the Claims Examiner was trying to remedy the default per her job description, not confirm that they were in default.
Here is a copy and paste of the body of the correspondence, the full document has been forwarded to the DoL IG for investigation along with computer printout they attached.
Dear Mr Lee
Pursuant to Claims Examiners Kristina Hall’s request of January 3, 2012 and as a supplement to our response dated January 9, 2012, please find enclosed a payment printout showing payments issued by CNA International to medical providers regarding Mr. Clark. The enclosed printout also shows the recent reimbursement payment of $1,270.34.
Defendents will continue to adjust medical invoices when and as received with accompanying medical reports.
Sounds just like they are paying for Injured War Zone Contractors Medical over the years. The reimbursement was for Out of Pocket presented in 2009 and clearly 15 months post order.
Problem here is that these payments were not for provided medical.
One is for a final report, not diagnoses or treatment, requested by CNA prior to hearing , that really made the Doctor mad over wasting his precious time, and the rest are for Defense Medical Examination’s. Pages 3 and 4 were with held but we suspect they include the parade of DME’s that were demanded.
The very abusive DME’s that were required repeatedly and outside of his geographic area. The ones that ALJ Paul C Johnson assisted CNA with.
Not only did CNA represent these DME’s as having provided medical care for this Injured War Zone Contractor when in fact they did not, they reinforced the lie by stating that they will continue to do so.
Unless that is, the DoL IG failed to investigate previous requests or are simply failing to provide documents requested under the Freedom of Information Act.
