How do my medical bills get paid in a Workers Compensation Claim?
Hi, I'm Lucas Foust of Foust Law Office and I'm here to answer a quick question. This quick question I receive from people who have injured at work, and they simply asked me, "How do my bills get paid? How do my medical bills get paid?" While under the Workers' Compensation Act, your worker's compensation insurance provider is required to pay for any and all medical bills related to your industrial injury. In other words, if you were hurt at work, they'd have to pay for it.
So I recommend that if you are in fact injured at work, that you provide your workers' compensation insurance information to any and all of your healthcare providers and request that that entity pay all of your medical bills. It avoids an awful lot of confusion. If you send your bills through workers' compensation, rather than your own health insurance company. To answer this question and other questions in much more detail, I encourage you to download our book, A Comprehensive Guide to Workers' Compensation Law in Montana.
