If you cannot work in Pennsylvania because of injuries or medical problems, there are two federal government programs that may help you.


The moment you become injured at work, everything changes. You suddenly can't work. The paychecks stop.


Slips, trips and falls are a part of everyday living. But when your slip-and-fall was someone else's fault, it is an entirely different matter, especially if you are injured.


A Pennsylvania Supreme Court decision from the end of 2013 sets some important rules that apply to something an employer can do to try to reduce the benefits of an injured worker.

Workers' Compensation Medical Benefits

Claiming Your Medical Benefits

As a worker injured on the job in Pennsylvania, you are entitled to workers' compensation medical benefits for that injury or for an occupational disease. The law requires that your employer pay all reasonable and necessary medical treatment needed as the result of your work-related injury or disease.

Sounds simple, right? In reality, the process is not as simple as it sounds.

Your Employer Can Refuse To Pay

Your employer can refuse to pay any medical bill, and employers often do when they have filed a utilization review. When that happens, your case will go to a Utilization Review organization. The Utilization Review organization then makes a decision. If you or your employer disagrees with that decision, your case then goes before a workers' compensation judge.

Other times, some employers simply don't pay the bills even though the law says that they're supposed to pay.

All the while, the clock keeps ticking, you have problems getting the treatment you need, and your stress keeps mounting.
