What Type of Medical Expenses Will Workers’ Comp Cover?

While each case is unique and your specific benefits will depend on your exact injuries and determined disability level, there are certain expenses that you can expect to be covered.

Some of the most common include the following:

  • Prescriptions
  • Any surgical procedures
  • Hospitalization
  • Medical supplies or devices
  • Travel expenses (if more than 10 miles)

However, in order to be covered under workers’ compensation, you must go to the doctor that your employer or their insurance has chosen. If you do not, you may be left to pay for your medical expenses on your own. You may be able to request to see another doctor or receive a second opinion if you are not happy with the medical professional they have chosen for you. You will also be provided a percentage of your average weekly wage if you have to miss more than seven days.
