Under the Kansas Worker's Compensation law, you must follow the treating physician's/provider's orders. To do so, you likely will need to travel to-and-from a number of medical appointments. Where possible, the medical manager of your claim will arrange your appointment location(s) within five miles of your home; however, in many instances, this is not possible. Where your travel exceeds five miles, each way, you may receive mileage reimbursement from the insurance company. Those reimbursable travel expenses may include: doctor's appointments, hospital visits, physical therapy, picking up prescriptions, parking fees, meals (where the appointment is several hours long and a great distance from home), cost to pay for a driver (ex. taxi), etc... You will be reimbursed per mile based on the current Work Comp. rates. In certain instances (ex. it is dangerous for you to drive because of the nature of your injury), the insurance company may be responsible for arranging your transportation. We encourage you to keep a log of your miles and submit requests for payment monthly.
We have recovered tens-of-thousands of dollars for other injured clients and will work tirelessly to get what is fair for you. If you, or your loved one, have been injured at work give us a call today at 913.602.7288 or complete this FORM.
