A: Hello, thank you for your question. If you are off work and the insurance company did not accept or deny the claim then they are supposed to pay you until the claim is denied if that's what's going to happen. If you have medical bills those have to be paid also until something is done with the case. I would need to know more information to give you a more specific answer but that's the general rule that the insurance company has to pay benefits as if the claim was accepted until it does something different. Please feel free to email me at or call me, preferably tomorrow, at 602-540-6366. Thank you again
