When Workers' Compensation claims are accepted, your injured workers can be entitled to compensation payments. Some of the most common types are:
Payments for time off work
To be eligible, your employees must provide you with approved Workers' Compensation medical certificates from their treating doctor. The amount they receive depends on their fitness for work and duration of incapacity. We reimburse you for these payments when liability has been accepted.
Reasonable medical and hospital expenses
If your injured workers need to be treated away from home, accommodation costs may be paid.
Travel and transportation costs
Reasonable public transport and car travel costs may be reimbursed if your employees need to travel to and from medical appointments. A travel reimbursement form and invoices or receipts must be provided as proof of expenses.
Lump sum payments
If your employees are permanently impaired because of a workplace injury they may be entitled to a lump sum payment.
