Why does it take so long for a reply with workmans compension to answer claims in Ontario Canada.?

Question by wayne s: Why does it take so long for a reply with workmans compension to answer claims in Ontario Canada.?
I have real bad hearing loss. I worked for fifty years in industry in eastern Ontario. I needed hearing aids repaired. The company said that the compension board may get me the new digital hearing aids. Well I am 70 years old and I have waited for close to 7 months. Should I just give up or keep persueing it?

URGH! Welcome to my world in the US. I’m dealing with Worker’s Comp too. We have insurance actually that works out claims. But, there are so many fraudulent claims that the process is so slow because they want to make sure it’s valid and I only get the necessary treatment. All the while, I am getting more and more damage because I can’t get treatment, which ends up cost more…sorry, ranting.
