How Are Work Injury Medical Expenses Billed?

In most cases, if a workers’ compensation claim has been accepted by the workers’ comp company, the injured worker is not required to pay for the medical treatment. Typically, the medical provider bills the insurance company directly and may not seek additional compensation from the worker to make up for the difference between what they charge and what the workers’ compensation system pays.

Steps to Take After a Work Injury

Always retain copies of all out-of-pocket medical bills and related expenses while your case is under review. Talking with an experienced workers’ compensation attorney during this time is critical, as they can explain all your legal options to ensure you are getting maximum compensation for your work-related injuries.

Our top-rated workers’ comp attorneys at Georgelis Injury Law Firm know the law inside and out, and will explain your options and offer advice on the next best steps in your process.

Our FREE CASE REVIEWS allow you the opportunity to ask any questions you have about your claim, with the ultimate goal of making sure you understand your rights and have a plan to move forward.

Other Types of Medical Expenses Covered by Workers' Compensation

In addition to your necessary medical expenses related to your workplace injury, you may also be eligible for other forms of compensation, including:

  • Lost wages: If your injury caused you to miss work, you may receive either total or partial disability, which will grant either two-thirds of your average weekly wage or two-thirds of the difference between your pre and post injury wages.
  • Vocational rehabilitation: Rehabilitation to help you get back into the workforce may also be available. This includes diagnostic services, placement assistance, restoration and support services, and job training.
  • Specific loss benefits: If you've suffered serious injuries including facial disfigurement, scarring, amputation, loss of limb, or vision or hearing loss, you may be eligible for specific loss benefits which include lump sum payments.
