Workers’ Compensation Mileage Increase
On January 1, 2022, the rate increased to 58.5 cents per mile, and on July 1, 2022 the rate will increase again to 62.5 cents per mile, reflecting the change in gas prices.
This can add up! If you are treating for a work injury, and check the location services on your phone, you will probably see multiple zip zags between your home, your medical provider, and perhaps your physical therapist.
The best way to keep track of your mileage is to keep a log in your car. Every time you go to an appointment, note the date, the provider, and the round trip mileage. If you should forget to check your odometer, it is easy to use Google map directions to find an exact mileage figure. (The insurance adjuster will also use Google maps to double check your calculations.)
Once your mileage is turned into your workers’ compensation insurance, they have 30 days to issue a check for reimbursement.
Mileage reimbursement is one more reason to have an experienced workers’ compensation attorney on your side. We make sure that you are 100% reimbursed for the miles your drive for your medical treatment.
