No, as long as you are receiving treatment from an authorized physician. If you have a compensable injury, your employer and its insurance company will pay all of your medical bills according to the Georgia Workers’ Compensation Fee Schedule. So even if your physician charges more than the amount allowed by the Fee Schedule, the charges will be reduced to the Fee Schedule-amount and your employer and its insurance company will pay that amount.
You are not responsible for any medical bills that are above the Fee Schedule. If you receive any medical bills or are asked to pay any portion of you medical bills, you should inform your employer or its insurance company and ask them to pay these bills. If you have any questions or concerns about your medical bills, we recommend contacting an experienced Atlanta workers’ compensation attorney.
