PA Workers' Compensation is a legal remedy that covers medical expenses and wage loss for employees who have been injured in the course and scope of their employment.
IN CASE OF A PA WORK-RELATED INJURY:
1. Immediately report the work-related injury/illness:
2. Medical care must be obtained from one of the designated health care panel providers for ninety (90) days from the date of first visit to a designated provider.
3. If you require emergency medical care, you may seek treatment at the closest Emergency Department for your initial care but any additional medical treatment must be obtained from one of the designated health care panel providers.
If you are an employee living and working outside of Pennsylvania, other guidelines must be followed. See the appropriate 'Outside PA' link.
