What medical expenses are covered?
After requesting workers' compensation for a workplace injury or illness, you may be entitled to benefits for emergency room care, doctor visits, hospital stays, blood tests, rehabilitation and even transportation costs. Diagnostic tests, including MRIs and X-rays are covered if a doctor deems them necessary to evaluate your work-related injury. Under the workers' compensation insurance program, western medicine and standard treatments are commonly covered. In general, all expenses for medical treatment that is recommended by your physician and necessary for your care are covered.
Limitations on Treatment for Work Injuries
You must gain an awareness of the limitations placed on treatments covered under workers' compensation. Some types of treatment, such as chiropractic, massage, and physical therapy have limits on the number of sessions covered. You may be entitled to further treatment if your physician recommends the continued sessions. In some cases, your employer or their insurance company can request an independent medical examination to determine whether further treatment can improve your condition. After you have opened a claim with workers' compensation, the insurance company can pay your covered bills at once.
