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.
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.
