What Types Of Medical Treatment & Services Are Covered?
Your medical bills should be covered in full by workers' compensation. You should not have to pay deductibles or co-pays. In addition to your medical care and medications, you will receive reimbursement for travel to and from your medical appointments.
Covered medical treatment and services for injured workers may include:
- Emergency room visits
- Doctor's appointments
- Hospital stays
- Nursing care
- Home health care
- Physical therapy
- Chiropractic services
- Rehabilitative therapy
- Occupational therapy
- Psychological care
- Medical equipment
If you need specialized medical treatment, it should be covered by workers' compensation. In some cases, however, you may need a lawyer to advocate for the care you need. We can assist you if your employer or its insurer denies any type of care or service you need after a work injury or occupational illness. We are dedicated to obtaining the benefits our clients need to recover from workplace accidents, injuries, and illnesses. No case is too complex for us to resolve.
