Getting Medical Care

Helping Injured Workers In Mississippi Get The Treatment They Need

After being injured on the job, you are going to need medical treatment. But many workers aren't sure how to go about getting medical care that meets workers' compensation requirements. The experienced workers' compensation lawyers at Tabor Law Firm, P.A. help injured workers in Ridgeland, Jackson and beyond get the medical care they need and the benefits they deserve.

Following your injury, an employer or insurance company may try to get you to sign a "choice of physician" form. This is an attempt to get you to see a doctor of their choosing, one who will have their best interests in mind to keep costs low. But you are under no obligation to sign this form.

    In Mississippi, you can choose your own doctor or medical provider to treat your work-related injury. You can also see specialists, but all referrals must come from the initial doctor you choose. You are also not limited to a licensed medical doctor - for example, you can choose to see a chiropractor.

    What's Covered

    Under state law, as an injured worker, you are covered for all reasonable and necessary medical treatment for your injury. This includes:

    • Doctor appointments
    • Hospital services
    • Medication
    • Physical therapy
    • Apparatus (such as crutches or a wheelchair)

    You are also eligible for reimbursement for travel expenses to and from appointments.

    But employers and insurance companies can and do question whether some types of medical care are reasonable or necessary. They may take the position that your injury was pre-existing and not related to work, and so is not covered by workers' compensation. They can deny your claim, leaving you with no way to pay for needed medical care.
