After signing the medical release papers 4 times for the other Insurance Co. and sending back 2 certified because they never seemed to have it, then sending all the medical records and copies of bills because they said they had problems getting them (personally, I don't think they ever tried). Why is it now that I have a Lawyer, he sends me a note saying "he's sure I've signed this before, but they need me to sign it again" and sends me ANOTHER medical auth. release. What is it with the other insurance? Is this just a stall for time? Four is not enough? And besides how and why would they have tried to settle with a 2x if they didn't have this info? What's the deal? Any ideas? I personnally think they just can't get their s--- together! Or don't want to, I don't get it.
Thanks for any 2cents.

My response:

Sounds kinda fishy to me, also. If it makes no sense (and you're good at seeing that, Jontue), then give your attorney a call and ask the same questions. I'd be interested in the response from him.

I did just that. I called and talked to the secretary for the lawyer. And was told the same thing "I don't doubt that you signed one or more of these already, for some stupid reason they want another" when I asked why would that be the response was "'cuz their idiots". That was it, plain and simple.??????????

Does it make sense? Do they loose everything or could there be something behind this? Seems so simple. So what, a signature, get her records, please. But why soo many?

My response:

I guess no one can help it if the adjuster is an idiot. It can't hurt to sign them again, since you signed them in the past.

However, in my practice, I always write back to the insurance company adjuster telling them that such "authorizations" will not be signed; opting instead to inform them that the medicals and bills, once received, will all be mailed with a "Demand for Settlement Letter". In this way, I can review the medicals for errors, first, and then have an corrections made prior to the insurance company seeing them.

But, since you have previously signed such authorizations, there's no telling whether the adjuster will "find" the previous ones, and use those.

So, talk it over with your attorney to see which strategy he wishes to employ.
