Workers' Comp for Medical Mileage
Get Reimbursed for Your Injury-Related Travel--Call (888) 245-6507!
When an employee is involved in an accident at their workplace and suffers a workplace injury as a result, the resulting expenses can be significant.
Workers' compensation could cover most of the expenses. However, he or she will not only be faced with medical bills and
wage loss, but will be required to travel more in order to visit doctors and pick up prescriptions. The mileage for such travel can add up very quickly, especially in today's economy where gasoline can be more than four dollars per gallon. Fortunately, these expenses could be reduced for an injured worker by filing for medical mileage reimbursement.
Medical Mileage Rates in California
As of July 1, 2011, an injured employee can receive 55.5¢/gal. as reimbursement for their medical mileage. This may not seem like much, but think of it this way-after 100 miles of travelling to and from doctors' appointments, pharmacies, and therapy sessions, you could receive more than $50 reimbursement. Though it a small percentage, it is better than nothing; and it is what you rightfully deserve. Keep in mind that you must complete and file the required form in a timely manner, so contact a Walnut Creek workers' comp attorney today to get legal help.
