Case Synopsis

In order to deny a claim for coverage for a specific body part under a worker’s compensation policy, the denial must be made in writing, specifying that that body part is denied. A finding that an injury to a specific body part was impliedly denied coverage under a worker’s compensation claim because it wasn’t listed among the specifically approved body parts violates NRS 616C.065 and NRS 616C.390.
