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?



In Iowa, employers are only required to pay for pre-surgical testing/treating when it is “reasonably necessary” as a result of a work-related accident.  Employers are required to pay TTD benefits to an employee only when the employee is off-work due to a work-related accident. Please see memo here.
