Understanding Workers compensation medical benefits
Workers are injured on the job every day. Under the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), you are entitled to a safe workplace. If injured, you are entitled to medical compensation and benefits under Florida State law.
The delivery of medical care is the primary focus of the Florida Workers compensation program, regardless of who was at fault. Your employer is responsible for Workers compensation medical benefits, including the following:
- Necessary medical care, including hospitalization, surgery, supplies, prescriptions, doctor and specialist visits, diagnostic and other medical tests, and prosthesis
- Mileage reimbursement for traveling to doctor appointments
- Specialized equipment, such as a wheelchair or other necessary medical devices
Because your employer or their insurer is paying for your medical care, your treatment must be arranged through a health care provider authorized through your employer. Choosing care by your own physician or another doctor not authorized by the insurer can result in loss of payment for medical benefits.
Common Problems With Workers Compensation Medical Benefits
After an injury, it is common to experience some difficulties receiving adequate or needed medical care from health care providers designated by your employer.
With successful experience protecting the rights of our clients, the Sternberg legal team can assist you with these common problems, including the following:
- You were advised you are well enough to return to work when you are not
- Appropriate medical tests were not ordered or performed to assess or treat your condition
- A physician argues or reports that your injury was not job related
- Pain or other discomfort was not acknowledged or assessed by your health care provider
- A necessary specialist referral was not provided
Good medical care is essential to helping you recover from your injuries so you can return to work. This is just one reason why it is important to seek legal advice on Workers compensation medical benefits.
