Were you injured on the job? Do you have piles of medical bills? Understandably, you’re probably under stress and in pain.
If you can’t work due to your injury, you may wonder how you’ll be able to pay the medical bills.
You may be relieved to know that Pennsylvania workers’ compensation provides benefits for injured workers – including medical bills.
Which Medical Expenses are Covered?
The following medical expenses are covered under Pennsylvania workers’ compensation:
- Doctor visits – If your employer has posted a list of company physicians at your workplace, you must see one of them for the first 90 days to receive payment for your medical expenses. If no list is posted, you may choose your own doctor. Learn more about company doctors and medical exams.
- Hospital expenses
- Prescription drugs and other medications
- Orthopedic devices
- Medical supplies
Note: You don’t have to miss any work to receive Pennsylvania workers’ compensation payments for your medical expenses – they are considered separate from lost wages payments and other workers’ compensation benefits. On the other hand, receiving payments for your medical expenses doesn’t mean that you’ve been approved for these other types of workers’ compensation payments.
