Medical care for work-related injuries and illnesses

Have you been injured in a job-related accident in Minnesota? Perhaps you have developed an illness that is linked to some conditions at your place of employment. These are just some examples of situations in which you may need to file for workers' compensation benefits. One part of these benefits is coverage for medical care related to your injury or illness. It is important that you understand how to get the apporpriate level of care and what rights you have under the law.

As explained by the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry, if an injury or illness is approved as work-related, your employer's workers' compensation insurance may pay for your medical treatment. This also includes supplies as well as active treatment. The law stipulates that treatment and supplies considered necessary to provide a full cure or to ease the impact of the injury or illness on you will be covered.

In many situations, you may have the ability to see the provider of your choice. This may include a primary care physician, a surgeon, a chiropractor, a podiatrist, a psychologist and more. In other situations, you may need to see a provider approved by your employer. In addition to coverage for new injuries or illnesses, existing conditions that are made worse by a work situation or incident may also be covered.

If you would like to learn more about the type of medical coverage available for injuries that are related to your job and how you can receive care, please feel free to visit the injured workers' treatmentpage of our Minnesota workers' compensation website.
