4. Is the cost of mileage to and from medical appointments reimbursed?
If you must travel 10 miles or more from your home to attend a medical appointment (20-mile roundtrip), then you are entitled to mileage reimbursement for that trip. The reimbursement rate is modified by the Industrial Commission from time to time; for 2013, the rate is $0.565 per mile. Additionally, if you do not have access to transportation, the insurance carrier/employer must arrange for transportation to carry you to and from your appointments. Requests for mileage reimbursement are made by submitting a "Form 25T" to the Industrial Commission. Click here to download a Form 25T.
