Do My Medical Benefits End if I Return to Work?

Man reading papers

True or false: “Once you return to work, you can’t see the doctor anymore.”

Answer: False. However, many people incorrectly believe the answer is “true.”

Medical care is available for life of the injury as long as two conditions are met: (1) The treatment is reasonable and necessary, and (2) The treatment is still “related to” the original work injury. (Unless the case has settled with medical benefits also settled and closed.)
