Under Nebraska Workers’ Compensation law, you are entitled to reimbursement for mileage to and from doctor and other health care providers as a result of a work injury. The mileage reimbursement is set by the Workers’ Compensation Court.
The current Nebraska mileage reimbursement rate is 56.5 cents per mile (as of 1/1/2013).
See below for the Nebraska Workers’ Compensation Court’s historical data on mileage rates and maximum weekly disability benefits.
Many adjusters will not remind you about your right to mileage reimbursement. I suggest you keep a weekly log of any appointments with your healthcare providers and include the date and round trip mileage. Send the mileage log to the adjuster in writing (keep a copy of the log) and you should receive a reimbursement payment within 30 days.
Putnam Law is dedicated to the representation of injured workers. As always you should contact our office for a free consultation if you are having any trouble getting your mileage reimbursed.
