When you submit your medical records and bills to an adjuster, not all treatment will be treated the same by the adjuster. One distinction is made between treatment and diagnostic. If most of the person’s medical bills are due to the diagnosis of the injury instead of treating an injury then the adjuster may evaluate the claimant’s pain and suffering less severe. Another major distinction is made between treatment from actual doctors compared to treatment form chiropractors, acupuncture or any other treatment of this sort. Treatment not received from an accredited doctor is less credible in the adjuster’s perceptive, and is generally valued less than treatment one would receive at an actual doctor’s office.
