The COVID-19 crisis is currently preventing many specialist doctors from calling in injured patients for examination. They have to cancel or postpone planned examinations.
This means that if you have sustained an injury at work, or have an employee who has, and have been called in for an examination at a health clinic or hospital as a result, there is a risk that the appointment may be cancelled or postponed.
If your appointment is cancelled or postponed, you do not need to do anything yourself. The specialist doctor or department concerned will call you in for a new examination once the current situation in the healthcare system permits.
As a result of the present situation, Labour Market Insurance (Arbejdsmarkedets Erhvervssikring) has automatically extended the deadline stated in the letter by eight weeks. In general, Labour Market Insurance expects that in many cases the current situation will lead to extra waiting time in connection with conducting medical examinations and collecting medical material. This may also involve longer case processing times for the cases affected.
