Medical Benefits And Treatment Related to Your Workplace injury Or Illness:
New York’s injured workers are entitled to lifetime medical coverage for workplace injuries and illnesses.
No copays can be charged by your medical providers. However, New York’s Workers’ Compensation Board publishes
medical treatment guidelines that often limit and complicate securing the treatments recommended by your
doctors. In addition, insurance companies often hire medical consultants to help them fight your entitlement
to reasonable medical treatment.
Please contact us if you have been denied medical treatment related to your workplace injury or illness. We can help you
and your doctor navigate New York’s increasingly difficult workers’ compensation medical-benefit system.
