Mental health claims face growing scrutiny

October 2, 2023

Employers and insurers are more likely to challenge the treatment of mental injury claims as workers compensation systems see an increase in claims with a psychological element, experts say.

Although fewer mental injury claims are denied outright as states expand comp presumptions for workplace psychological injuries, treatment for those claims is more heavily scrutinized through dispute mechanisms such as independent medical evaluations.

In addition, special expertise is needed to evaluate mental injuries, which complicates the claims and evaluation process.
