The New Jersey Workers’ Compensation Law provides that an injured employee shall receive various types of medical treatment and payment for expenses including:
The statute does not provide an inclusive listing, however. Other medical treatments that are covered by workers’ compensation depending on the extent and nature of an employee’s injury include:
Just as the New Jersey statute does not provide an itemized listing of medical treatments and expenses that are covered by workers’ compensation, the law similarly fails to provide an exhaustive listing of services that are not covered. Experimental drugs and treatments are not covered, although any injured employee can obtain such services at their own expense. Other services that are not likely covered include acupuncture and biofeedback.
If you believe a specific medical treatment or procedure is imperative to your overall recovery or cure, your New Jersey worker’s comp lawyer can review the specific treatment and determine if a request can be made to workers’ compensation to provide reimbursement.
When an employee becomes injured on the job, he or she should not have to navigate the workers’ compensation system alone. Call Helmer, Conley & Kasselman, P.A. to discuss the nature and extent of your injuries and to confirm what types of medical treatments and expenses can be paid on your behalf.
