In many states, an injured employee is entitled to reimbursement for mileage expenses incurred in seeking medical care. The state workers' compensation law may provide a certain amount per mile that the employee is to be reimbursed for mileage driving to and from the medical provider. This may include visits to the doctor, hospital, physical therapist, and pharmacy. Travel expenses for medical care outside of your home city may also be reimbursed, including the actual costs of meals and lodging, up to a maximum. It is important that you understand your rights under the workers' compensation law of the state where you are employed. For more information on workers' compensation, contact a qualified attorney.
