Medical Costs Workers’ Comp May Cover
What sort of medical expenses does workers’ compensation usually cover?
- Diagnostic measures, such as X-rays or blood tests
- Necessary surgeries
- Certain rehabilitative therapies or treatments
- Pharmaceutical medicines and prescriptions
What might not be covered by workers’ compensation benefits?
- Alternative treatments, like acupuncture or therapeutic massage
- Alternative medicine, such as medical marijuana
- Experimental treatments not clinically known to work as expected
You should also know that an insurance provider may be permitted to limit the amount of rehabilitative treatments and ongoing treatments. It is also important to note that any treatment type or medicine denied by an insurer may not necessarily be tabled permanently. An experienced workers’ compensation attorney, or even additional reviews from your medical provider, may be able to convince the insurer that the treatment is needed. However, do not be surprised if you are told to attend another medical review. Failing to attend such a review could disqualify you from workers’ compensation benefits, so you must do your best to attend.
