Great info! About time! John A knows what he is talking about.

It’s hard to find good information on Work Comp and I have 5 years of experience in this field. I have been a patient and worked within the field myself. Unless you have a good WC attorney (hard to find) you really are in a land of unknowns. It’s easy to just listen to your adjuster and insurance ,which typically are not on your side. Even doctors seem to be very clueless in this field. Glad to see that RateFast is so innovative in what they do!
