Top 3 questions regarding medical benefits in Michigan.

Question #1: What kind of medical benefits does workers’ compensation provide?

You are entitled to reasonable and necessary medical treatment related to your work injury. This includes doctor visits and hospital services as well as prescription medications. You can also get dental care, artificial limbs, eyeglasses, hearing aids, wheelchairs and other appliances necessary to cure or relieve the effects of your work injury. There should never be any co-pays or deductibles.

Question #2: Who pays medical bills if workers’ compensation refuses?

Most health insurance companies will agree to pay disputed medical bills when you have a pending workers’ compensation case. You may need to provide a formal document entitled Notice of Dispute. You may also have to sign a reimbursement agreement and pay them back out of the proceeds of any settlement or award.

Question #3: What is the attendant care benefit for family members?

Family members can be paid up to 56 hours per week for helping with activities of daily living. A spouse, brother, sister, child, parent or any combination of these individuals can receive payment from workers’ compensation. You must keep a record of hours worked and what services were provided. The amount paid should equal what a professional would charge.
