Medical Mileage Reimbursement for MN Workers’ Compensation Injuries

One of the workers’ compensation benefits provided to injured workers in Minnesota is reimbursement for medical mileage. 

This is also one of the most frequently overlooked benefits. If you don’t submit your medical mileage to the insurer for reimbursement, they aren’t going to pay it.

The current medical mileage reimbursement rate for travel for medical care or treatment for a work-related injury, on or after July 1, 2011 is 55 ½ cents per mile.  If you’re traveling back and forth to multiple doctor appointments, chiropractor visits, or physical therapy, your claim for medical mileage reimbursement, your mileage reimbursement claim can really add up.

The most challenging aspect to making a claim for medical mileage reimbursement is remembering to keep track of your round trip mileage to and from your appointments, and remembering to periodically submit your mileage to the workers’ compensation insurer for reimbursement.
