A: You are responsible for paying medical bills not covered by your Worker's Comp. claim, regardless of the reason. If you disagree with the denial, you have (or had) 90 days from the date of the notice, not 90 days from the date you received it, to file a request for hearing with the Industrial Commission of Arizona at 800 W. Washington St., Phoenix. The request for hearing must actually be delivered to the Commission, and not just put in the mail on or before the 90th day. If you are still within the 90 days and you believe you have a valid case, you may feel free to contact me at 602-687-9211 or jfriedman@cruzfirm.com. Thank you
