How Soon can You Benefit from Massachusetts Workers Compensation?
If you suffered an accident or were otherwise hurt on the job, you are typically entitled to workers' compensation benefits in Massachusetts. These benefits will cover the cost of your medical treatment and a portion of your lost wages while you are out of work. Medical Benefits Should Start Immediately Workers’ compensation benefits in Massachusetts are designed to cover your medical treatment related to any work related injury. This is true whether you need an ambulance to get to the ER for surgery or just need a bandage to cover a couple of cuts and scratches. Typically, workers will tell providers that their treatment is for a work related injury. The provider will then bill the employer if it is self insured, or the workers’ compensation insurer.
