Medical Payments Under Missouri Work Comp
The first benefit, which in many ways is the most important benefit, which is available under the Missouri Workers Compensation Law to an injured worker who has suffered a workers compensation injury in Missouri is the right to have his or her medical bills paid for by the employer for reasonable and necessary medical treatment. What this means is that you get the Medical Bills paid because of a Work Injury.
As an injured worker, you are entitled to receive medical treatment paid for by your employer or the employer’s insurance company for your injuries. To the extent reasonably required, your employer must provide medical services, but does have the ability to determine who provides such medical treatment. This makes sense to a certain degree: if your employer is paying the bill, your employer thus also has the ability to determine the appropriate medical provider, so long as it is reasonable.
