Do I get reimbursed for mileage to my medical appointments, and how much?
An injured worker is entitled to reimbursement of reasonable transportation expenses if they have to travel to get treatment for a work injury. Reasonable expenses of transportation include mileage, parking, and bridge tolls. Mileage rates vary per year, and reimbursement is made at the rate applicable at the time of travel. Please keep all receipts related to travel for medical purposes. The current reimbursement rate, effective 1/1/16, is $.54 per mile. MPA confirms mileage distances through the use of Google Maps and/or Mapquest.
