Our attorneys can also answer all your questions. One of the most common questions we receive is, "What benefits does workers' comp provide?" Essentially, it provides both medical benefits and lost-wage benefits.

Hospital Care, Medications And Other Medical Expenses

Workers' compensation benefits include medical expenses. If you are treated by a doctor on your employer's list of authorized physicians, those bills will be covered. You don't have to pay any part of the bill or provide a copay upfront.

You can also obtain prescription drugs through workers' compensation. If your doctor prescribes the medication to treat your on-the-job injury, the cost is covered.

In addition to direct medical care and prescription medications, you can seek reimbursement for other expenses related to your medical treatment. For instance, if you are forced to travel to physical therapy appointments, workers' compensation may reimburse you for transportation costs or mileage.

Four Types Of Lost-Income Benefits

Workers' compensation also provides money to make up for the time you can't work and earn a regular paycheck. The amount you receive is based on several factors, including your normal weekly wage.

You may be eligible for:

  • Temporary Total Disability Benefits
  • Temporary Partial Disability Benefits
  • Permanent Partial Disability Benefits
  • Death benefits (for dependent spouses or minor children of employees who die on the job)
