What types of medical supplies/equipment are covered under workers’ comp and how to maximize your benefits in Michigan.

Employees hurt on-the-job are entitled to have their medical bills paid under workers’ comp. This includes everything from emergency room treatment to doctor visits months later. Getting the right medical treatment is the best way to ensure a good recovery.

Most people have their workers’ comp claims approved with little trouble. Insurance companies pay all reasonable and necessary medical treatment. This includes prescription medications, physical therapy, and even surgery.

Medical equipment should also be covered 100% without co-pays or deductibles. Here are just some items that you might not have realized are available under Michigan workers’ comp. Contact an experienced workers’ comp lawyer if the insurance company disputes payment.

Medical Supplies

Individuals who are recovering from surgery often require bandages, dressings, ointments, creams, lotions, slings, shoes, underpants, wash clothes, wipes, urinals, bedpans, catheter, and other items.

Medical Equipment

Prosthetics, eyeglasses, hearing aids, canes, crutches, walkers, wheelchairs, scooters, orthopedic pillows, bath safety, beds, power chair, TENS unit, and other appliances necessary to cure or relieve the effects of a workplace accident.

Vehicle Modifications

Modifications includes installing a power ramp for a wheelchair or hand controls so you can drive. The insurance company does not have to purchase a vehicle but it must make the necessary changes.

Home Modifications

A wheelchair accessible entry ramp, bathroom, and kitchen. Widening of hallways and doors. Installation of a powered device to go up and down stairs.
