What do I do?
Many employers and employees have questions when it comes to workers’ compensation treatment. Employees focus on figuring out how to get the treatment they need and finding out the extent of that treatment. While employers focus on determining what they need to pay and how much insurance will cover.
Medical treatment in workers’ comp cases according to North Carolina law should be covered by the employer or the employer’s insurance company. The coverage can depend on circumstances and can include treatment and assistance following treatment at medical facilities. Employers can require workers to report to a medical examination with a physician of the employer’s choice. Employees are allowed to get a second opinion from a physician that either the employer and the employee agree on, or that the NC Industrial Commission appoints.
