How to Obtain Prescriptions Under Workers’ Compensation Insurance

If you have been injured at work, you may need to know how to fill your prescription under workers’ compensation to heal and deal with the pain. As expected, prescriptions have to be filled by a pharmacy; but if you have filed for workers’ compensation for injuries or illnesses related to work, there are specific guidelines that have those recipes.

The following is a simple summary of the process How To Fill Your Prescription Under Workers’ Compensation at a pharmacy:

  1. Medications filling: You are entitled to get the drugs needed for work-related injury or disease under the Workers Compensation Act. However, it is important to note that the law allows those who are insured to choose pharmacies that you will be able to use to fill your prescription.
  2. Insurance carriers contradict claims: under Workers Compensation Act, an insurance company or self-insured employer does not have to pay for your prescription drugs or medical care if they have challenged the claim. If your claim is recognized as work-related, then the carrier or self-insured employer will have to pay for medical treatment and medicines. In the event that your claim is controversial and assigned the pharmacy will not fill their prescriptions, they are able to use a pharmacy of their choice.
  3. At Valuecare Pharmacy, our biggest concern is you. We take the financial burden off the process of prescription medications and deliver to your doorstep with no problems. We have full knowledge of the process of Workers Compensation and work with all parties both your claim to ensure you are getting the treatment you need.
  4. Your Current Prescriptions: Your insurance company can not stop receiving the medications you are currently taking. Under the Workers’ Compensation Act, insurance companies may not decide what prescriptions you are allowed to take. If an insurance company refuses to pay for a specific drug your doctor has prescribed for your illness or injury related to work, then the Board of Workers’ Compensation will make a decision in the dispute.

Reimbursement of prescription costs: There is no set time for which your company has a refund for the cost of your prescriptions. However, under the Workers’ Compensation Act, the carrier must pay any undisputed part of any claim within 45 days of receipt, unless a claim is disputed. If a claim is disputed, the insurance company must still pay any undisputed part of the claim within 45 days. Also, the request and why should notify not get paid.
