Highlight

Separation of powers prevents the Supreme Court from making independent findings of fact or substituting its judgment for that of the agency fact finder.
In WSI cases, a presumption may not be established favoring one doctor's opinion over another's. To resolve a conflicting medical opinion, an organization may consider the nature and length of the treatment relationship, the amount of evidence in support of the opinion, the opinion's consistency with the record, possible bias, whether the doctor specializes in the issues relevant to the opinion, and other relevant factors.
