Workers’ Compensation Medical Treatment

An employer or their workers’ compensation insurance company is required to provide medical treatment to the injured employee that will cure the injured workers’ injury, give relief of the pain, or lessen the employee’s disability caused by the injury. There are no deductible or co-pay, and no prerequisite that you miss work to collect medical benefits under workers’ comp laws in North Carolina. Not all workplace injuries are covered. An Injured worker can file an appeal for a second opinion on their condition or on any permanent disability rating.

Often in North Carolina workers’ compensation cases, there are disagreements between the insurance company and the employee to control the medical care. Injured North Carolina worker has the right under workers’ comp laws to request a hearing before the North Carolina Industrial Commission to help resolve medical treatment issues. Injured North Carolina workers who go two years without receiving medical treatment or any other benefits paid for by the workers’ compensation insurance carrier have a good chance of losing their right to medical treatment.
