Workers Comp Claim Process: Expense Reimbursement for Travel to Your Doctor
In the state of Georgia, mileage is considered a medical expense. You are entitled to reimbursement for your mileage to and from your doctor’s office in addition to other expenses. This applies if your employer or workers compensation insurance company are providing you with medical treatment for your work-related accident. However, your mileage must be submitted to the carrier within one year from the date of the medical appointment. Otherwise it will not be eligible for reimbursement. Make sure that you keep track of your mileage. This includes the date, as well as the physician’s address and distance, so that you can collect the reimbursement you are entitled to under the law. An experienced Georgia workers compensation lawyer will provide you with an easy to use form, and work with the insurance company to get you a check for mileage reimbursement quickly!
