What Are Insurance Medical Authorization Forms Used For?

When you’ve been in an accident and you decide to file a claim with your insurance company, you’ll need to provide strong evidence that connects your injuries and losses to the incident. At some point in time, the insurance adjuster may ask for documentation about your injuries and medical treatment. One of the documents you could be requested to sign is called a medical authorization form. In general, a medical authorization form will give the adjuster access to your medical records.

It’s important to understand what a medical authorization for is, what your insurance company will do with it, what they will see, and how they will use that information in regard to your claim before you sign anything. Speaking with a lawyer is always a good idea before signing any official documentation from your insurance company, so you don’t run into trouble later. Let’s go over the ins and outs of medical authorization forms and how they could affect your chances of receiving the compensation you need to recover from your accident.
