We can work with you through the process of obtaining benefits and we can help you to understand and protect your rights when it comes to getting your medical care paid for.

Workers’ Compensation Medical Benefits

Workers are entitled to medical benefits through workers’ compensation.

This means that whether you have cancer or a lung condition because of exposure to toxins, a hernia or repetitive stress injury due to performing job tasks, or an injury from an accident, your medical costs for your work-related health conditions should be covered in full.

Workers should be entitled to receive payment for all medical care required due to a work injury including:

  • Diagnostic appointments, lab testing, X-rays, MRIs or other imaging scans, and other medical testing necessary to determine the nature of the condition and develop a treatment method
  • Medical care, including physical examinations and surgical treatments or other interventions
  • Physical therapy and rehabilitation
  • Medications, including pain medications
  • Adaptive medical devices and medical equipment made necessary as a result of the work-related injury

Unfortunately, there are circumstances where workers’ compensation insurers either deny legitimate work injury claims for benefits or deny coverage for specific types of care that an injured worker may need.

If an insurer denies care because the workers’ compensation insurer believes it is unnecessary, experimental, or unlikely to provide relief for the patient, this can prevent an injured worker from getting the best standard of care.

Injured employees have the right to get the care their doctors believe they require, and workers’ compensation insurers should provide the full coverage for medical care necessary to help an injured employee to have the best chance at recovery. A workers’ compensation attorney can provide assistance to any worker who is facing challenges in getting the necessary coverage for post-injury treatments.
