When a decision is made about your claim, either the Department or your self-insured employer will issue an Order. All Orders have specific information which explains your right to protest or appeal the decision if you do not agree. If you want to protest or appeal a decision, you must do it in writing within 60 days of receiving the Order. It is not enough to call your claims manager, although you may do that in addition to sending your written protest or appeal. If you do not file a written protest or appeal of an Order, the decision in that Order becomes final and binding and cannot be changed. You must carefully review each Order. If any of the information contained in a Department Order is incorrect or if you disagree with any decision contained in a Department Order you must file a written protest to protect your rights. A written protest is sent to the Department. See Resource List above. The Department will review your claim and issue a new Order.
