What travel reimbursement is covered under workers compensation?

You can get mileage reimbursement for travel related to your medical care. This is paid at .55 cents per mile effective July 1, 2011. Please be aware that this amount changes and you should frequently check to make sure that you receive the correct mileage rate.

You can also get meals and lodging under workers compensation. This is typically paid when you must travel a large distance from home to receive medical care or undergo an independent medical examination.

The amount of money that you can receive for both meals and lodging is constantly changing. You can get updated reimbursement rates from the Workers Compensation Agency.
