Injured workers often ask if they should pay for medical treatment under their group health insurance or workers' comp. If you are injured on the job, workers' comp is required to pay for all reasonable medical treatment related to the job injury. However, workers' compensation carriers often deny the entire claim or refuse to pay for certain medical treatment. If that happens, workers often try to have their group health insurer pay for medical treatment. Although it is frustrating and time consuming, injured workers should make every effort to have the workers' comp carrier pay for medical before trying to have group health insurance pay.
