Workers’ Compensation Insurance covers the expenses involved in a work-related illness or injury. This may include medical costs and/or lost wages.

Here are four things that Workers’ Compensation covers.

Medical Costs

When an employee is injured at work, s/he needs medical attention; workers’ compensation can pay for doctor visits and other medical bills.

Lost Wages

Workers’ Comp can cover wages missed due to an injury or illness at work.

Ongoing Care

When a work injury or illness is so severe that the person needs ongoing care, such as rehabilitation or treatment from specialists, workers’ comp insurance can cover these costs.

Death Benefits

If a work injury or illness ends in death, workers’ comp insurance can cover funeral expenses and even covers death benefits, such as support payments to the employee’s dependents.
