Medical Bills & Treatment Under Workers' Comp

Who Pays the Medical Bills If You're Injured At Work?

Anyone who is hurt as a result of a work related injury or accident is entitled to receive full medical coverage to pay for their emergency medical care and any additional treatment deemed necessary to recover from the effects of the injury. Workers' compensation insurance is a federal and state mandated "no-fault" insurance plan required to be supplied by your employer.

When Does Workers' Comp Start Paying?

Once you report your injuries to your employer the workers' comp coverage begins and your medical bills and expenses are supposed to be paid by the insurance carrier. Because there is an insurance company involved, it sometimes happens that a claim is rejected, reduced or delayed by the insurance adjuster. This can mean any medical care you have already received may only be partially paid or not paid for at all, leaving you responsible for the bill. To prevent this, you should speak to a Loveland workers' comp lawyer at Busch Law Offices.

Does Workers' Comp Pay for Emergency Room Visits?

In general, if your accident was severe enough to require you to get immediate medical attention from an emergency room, workers' compensation should cover this bill as well. However, as soon as you have received your emergency medical treatment, it's important that you continue any additional medical visits and treatment with an approved workers' compensation doctor in order to ensure that your treatment will continue to be covered by workers' compensation.

What If Workers' Comp Is Not Paying My Medical Bills?

Under ordinary circumstances all of your medical bills, any necessary medication and any needed therapy or additional treatment necessary for your recovery should be paid under workers' comp coverage. Sometimes a claim will simply be delayed or a "penalty" charged for a late filing of other administrative mistake that have nothing to do with the validity of the injury claim.

Such tactics are common in insurance cases and delaying payment or disputing a claim is sometimes done with the assumption the claimant will simply give up. We can make sure your claim is correctly filed and work directly with the claims adjuster to address any such "issues" to get your claim processed.
