Medical Benefits

Your employer is responsible for providing medical treatment through an insurance carrier which includes, but is not limited to, the following:

Photo
  • An authorized primary doctor and specialist(s) when medically necessary.
  • All authorized medically necessary care and treatment related to your injury such as:
    • doctor’s visit
    • hospitalization
    • physical therapy
    • medical tests
    • prescription drugs
    • prostheses
    • attendant care
  • Mileage reimbursement for travel to and from your authorized doctor and the pharmacy.

Helpful Hints:

  • Report your injury or illness as quickly as possible to your employer. Your employer may authorize a doctor at the time of your accident, but the insurance carrier must authorize follow-up treatment.
  • If your accident results in emergency treatment, be sure to tell the emergency room staff you hurt yourself on the job, and give them a contact name and phone number of your insurance carrier or your employer.
  • Do not go on your own to your private doctor for treatment. The insurance carrier must authorize the doctor who is to treat you.
  • If your employer or insurance carrier does not respond to your request for medical treatment, you can contact the Employee Assistance and Ombudsman Office for assistance at the number listed below.
  • Do not skip appointments. This may cause your benefits to stop.
  • If you are billed for medical treatment contact either your carrier or our office at the number listed below.
