The short answer is you are entitled to mileage reimbursement to and from your doctors office within reason. If you are driving from Seattle to your doctor’s office workers’ compensation will not be required to pay for that trip. However if you are going from either work or your home to your doctors you are entitled to mileage there and mileage back. You are entitled to mileage to and from physical therapy and the pharmacy. Any logical reason you need to drive because of your workers’ compensation claim with the exception of going to a hearing, deposition or your independent medical evaluation/examination.
The rate is always changing but the most recent mileage rate is .40 per mile.
All rates are subject to change so always speak with a Georgia workers’ compensation attorney.
Be informed. Be aware. Be prepared.
