When Are Workers’ Compensation Benefits Paid?

Employees who experience a job-related injury are entitled to have their employer pay their medical expenses.

Employees who follow required procedures, including advising the treating physician that the injury occurred while working, should not be billed for most medical treatment. Instead, those bills should be sent to the employer or to the employer’s workers’ compensation insurer.

Employees are entitled to temporary disability payments after missing three days of work or after an overnight hospital stay. Employees are entitled to permanent disability benefits after their injuries have reached a maximum stage of healing and the treating physician determines that they will never fully heal.
