Who pays the medical bills in a workers' compensation case?
When employees are injured on the job, they often need medical treatment that may be expensive. If they are covered under workers’ compensation, then their employer’s insurance company will cover some or all of the expenses.
Because the payments are made by the insurance company, individuals typically do not pay the medical provider directly. Instead, they submit the medical bills to their employer’s insurance company, which will pay the bills.
If you are covered under workers’ compensation and your employer’s insurance is not paying your medical bills, contact the Des Moines workers’ compensation attorneys of LaMarca Law Group, P.C., at 877-327-2600.
