Helping You Take Advantage Of Your Workers’ Compensation Medical Benefits
Contact us about taking full advantage of your medical benefits after a work injury.
What Medical Benefits Am I Entitled To?
After an on-the-job injury or occupational disease caused by work conditions, you are entitled to receive reasonable medical care that is paid for by your employer’s workers’ compensation insurer. Reasonable medical care can mean many different things, including:
- Hospital services
- Physical therapy
- Chiropractic adjustments
- Medical equipment, including crutches, glasses and artificial limbs
You Have The Right To Choose Your Provider: Get The Right Doctor On Your Side
Your doctor’s opinion can have a major impact on your workers’ compensation claim. That’s why it is critical to have someone on your side who truly supports you. Unfortunately, many injured workers do not realize one simple but very important fact about the medical care they receive: If you have been injured on the job, you are not limited to seeing a company doctor, whose only goal may be to get you back to work as soon as possible. Instead, Minnesota law allows you to pick your own physician. You have the right to choose a doctor who will give you the kind of care you need — a health care professional who will take your work injury seriously, help you get the workers’ compensation benefits you are entitled to and make sure that you get the medical attention necessary to make a full recovery.
