2018 Workers Compensation Newsletter - First Quarter

In an otherwise compensable claim, when does an employer have to pay for pre-surgical testing/treatment and pay TTD benefits while such testing/treatment occurs?

 

 

Employers in Indiana are required to pay for pre-surgical testing and treatment expenses.  Pre-surgical testing and treatment has no bearing on the payment of TTD benefits.  The employer must pay TTD starting on the eighth day of disability regardless of the employee’s treatment status.  Please see memo here.
