What Prescriptions Must Be Covered By Workers’ Compensation?
The word “prescribe” is most often associated with a doctor prescribing pills. Yet while prescription medication may be the thing most frequently prescribed, it is certainly not the only thing your insurer needs to cover under Georgia workers’ compensation law. Your physician may prescribe a wide range of goods and services to treat your work illness or injury, including:
- Mobility aids, like walkers, canes and wheelchairs
- Stabilization devices such as splints
- Therapies, including physical, aquatic, cognitive or speech-language therapy
- Chiropractic services
- Pain management, which could include specialty mattresses
