Workers’ Compensation – Medical Benefits
Workers’ compensation benefits cover all “reasonable” and necessary medical care, including surgical, hospital, and dental care resulting from a work-related illness or injury. Also included are items such as medications, crutches, and other medical supplies when ordered by a physician.
Employees are also reimbursed for travel costs associated with going to and from the doctor, hospital, or other places of treatment. Rehabilitation services for injured workers who need help to return to employment may be available if the employee was injured or became ill because of conditions on the job.
This treatment is given by “authorized treating physicians.” Unfortunately, these physicians are chosen by the insurance company, not the employee. As a result, many times the insurance adjusters handling the case will pressure the physician to release the injured worker from treatment early or to find that the injured worker has no impairment. In fact, Florida state law actually rewards physicians who get injured workers back to work quickly.
