The Workers’ Compensation Act makes it your employer’s responsibility to pay for all reasonable and necessary medical treatment required as a result of a work injury or occupational disease. Your employer is required to pay medical bills within thirty days of receiving of your doctor’s bill and report. Be aware, payment of medical bills alone, without payment of workers’ compensation benefits, does not mean an employer has accepted liability for your injury.
Your employer can challenge the reasonableness and necessity of treatment or challenge the causal relationship of any bill. Where your employer refuses to pay your doctor’s bill or when your employer challenges the reasonableness or necessity of your treatment with your doctor, either you or your employer may request that a Utilization Review Organization review the dispute. When you or your employer has requested review by a Utilization Review Organization, the Organization must issue its opinion within thirty days. Regardless of whether you or the employer has requested review, the employer is responsible for paying for the first utilization review. If you or your employer disagree with the determination of the Utilization Review Organization, a Petition for Review may be filed and the issue will be decided by a workers’ compensation judge.
If your employer does not pay an entire medical bill which was incurred for treatment of a work injury or occupational disease, the doctor or health care provider is not permitted to seek the balance from you.
Medical benefits for work injuries and occupational diseases are payable for as long as you require treatment provided that the treatment continues to be reasonable, necessary and related to the work injury or occupational disease.
You are entitled to reimbursement for any travel expenses incurred in order to obtain medical treatment ONLY where you have received treatment outside of your community and that type of treatment is only available outside of the community where you live. Travel expenses which are subject to reimbursement include mileage, bus fare, tolls and parking expense.
