I feel Qualcom benefits dept should get involved to watch over ther employees so they want be abused like this. Not the best, but I do feel that they pay off doctors.After this treatment who would ever want to work for Qualcom because of the treatment from a CMS. My impairment rating was fixed, I’m sure of it, seeing that I went to another doctor and he said that my impairment should have been WAY higher. Doctor said can not work, employer agreed, but Sedgwick says not enough.Sedgwick claims to have more than 6,400 employees in more than 150 offices throughout the US and Canada.Sedgwick prides themselves on providing cost effective claims management, which usually means they use special techniques to help employers or insurance companies reduce the amount of financial exposure due to paying disability benefits.Either my doctor is spineless or Sedgewick can preform miracles.If I am injured further at work because of my “lifted restrictions” who will be responsible?Sedgwick, or better know as Sedgthug, is out for the best interest of the employer, not you.If you work for a self insured company such as Frito Lay, like I do, expect to be screwed. claim and Sedgthugs worked closely with Frito Lay to find doctors that they could pay to claim that it was a non work injury (,000.00 to one doctor).
Doctor puts me off work and Sedgwick for over a month now keeps finding faults with my paperwork and closes 3 cases in a month that I had to keep refiling for. I was in a car accident, not my fault, with broken ribs and several other bruises.
I was a good employee for 3 years and I am dissabled now trying to recover from foot surgery and this is the treatment i get. But the 2nd one is the one I’m having the most trouble with. My surgery failed from the first claim and they don’t want to pay for it. First time I tried to claim, they used every paperwork not filled out by doctor, paperwork not submitted etc. Employer has me collect unemployment until I can come back to work (Frito-Lay).
i was at at green mountain coffee roasters and was injured feb of 2011 as of yet i have recieved nothing. i have hired an attorney because being decent and honest with Sedwick proved to be a costly mistake. more people need to find out about the way things are handled. The only thing is, if I dont have this surgery I will lose my hand. I’m really disappointed that my employer would hire such a crappy company! They realized husband is disabled at this time and shouldn’t be at work but Sedgwick don’t care, they are insisting he return to work with out doctor’s release, even though the functionality test says not able to return to work ’till after treatment, which he just started. I was without income for four months and collected unemployment the last two.
Additional information about Sedgwick and their philosophy for handling disability insurance claims can be reviewed here.
From our law firm’s experience, Sedgwick appears to be overwhelmed with disability claims and they do not hire qualified people to administer claims.
