What Does Workers Compensation Cover?
Workers compensation comes with various forms of coverage, including:
Medical benefits for workers compensation can help cover medical bills an employee may face after a workplace accident. If an employee is injured at work, workers compensation insurance can pay for medical benefits such as emergency medical care, doctor’s visits, surgeries, medical procedures and more.
Disability benefits cover expenses if an employee is rendered disabled due to a work-related injury. There are four sections of disabilities:
Partial temporary disability
Partial permanent disability
Total temporary disability
The compensation an employee may receive for a disability may depend on the severity of the injury. This insurance may also provide compensation for vocational disability in case the employee is unable to return to their previous injury due to a workplace injury.
After an employee is injured, they may not be able to work for a certain period of time. In these cases, workers compensation insurance will provide replacement for a portion of the employee’s wages for as long as they are unable to return to work.
