City Drug & Workers’ Compensation
Here at City Drug, we know the workers’ compensation system and the process it takes to ensure that your prescriptions get filled and your equipment is covered, which is one more thing you do not have to worry about during this time in your life. We know how this works and we care about you.
In plain terms, workers’ compensation is insurance that provides benefits to workers who have been injured or made ill because of their employment. The majority of employers (but not all) must have workers’ comp insurance for their employees.
Workers’ comp is activated when an employee suffers an illness or injury at work or while performing their duties. Its purpose is to pay benefits that help with an injured employee’s missed wages, medical treatment, and rehabilitation. If an injury results in a long-term or permanent disability, then a worker may be entitled to disability benefits too.
What to do if you have an injury at work:
- Seek medical treatment
- Report the injury to your employer within 24 hours of the injury, in writing
- File a workers’ compensation claim with your employer
- Find out from your employer if you need to visit an approved medical provider
- Visit the doctor (make sure to say that your visit is for a work-related injury)
- Keep detailed records of doctors you visit, people you speak to, travel, missed work, out-of-pocket expenses, and receipts
- Talk to your assigned workers’ comp adjuster throughout the process
What’s Covered Under Workers’ Compensation?
Injuries that occur at the workplace are usually covered by workers’ comp insurance, but you don’t necessarily have to be at your job. Employees who experience an injury while performing their duties can receive benefits. Let’s say that you’re a driver at your job. If you’re in an accident while making a delivery, then you may be protected.
There are some exceptions, though. Specifically, you may not be covered if you’re in a fight that you caused, if you’re intoxicated, or if the injury occurs during your commute.
The workers’ compensation system can also protect employers from litigation and liability. That’s the case most of the time, but there are exceptions. You may have options to sue if you experience:
- Failure to be promoted
- Gross negligence on the part of your employer
- Malicious intent
- Or wrongful termination
You should also know that your employer cannot retaliate against you as a result of filing a claim for workers’ compensation – that’s illegal.
