Travel reimbursement
BWC will reimburse an injured worker for reasonable and necessary travel expenses

With the Travel Reimbursement benefit, BWC will reimburse an injured worker for reasonable and necessary travel expenses when:

  • The injured worker has been ordered or authorized by BWC or IC to undergo a medical examination outside the community where he or she lives and the travel distance exceeds the mileage distance determined by BWC in the (C-60A) Injured Worker Reimbursement Rates for Travel Expense form.
  • Medical treatment, including a service contained in the approved rehabilitation plan, is necessary and:
  • The injured worker’s injury (allowed condition) requires the use of a taxi or other special transportation for treatment or examination.

 

Travel reimbursement from your employer

The employer is responsible for travel expense reimbursement when the travel is related to a request for a medical examination by a physician of the employer’s choice. Reimbursement of travel expenses in this situation will not require an order from BWC or the IC, unless there is a dispute. Employer reimbursement is not subject to the minimum mileage requirements that apply to BWC’s travel reimbursement.
