What Happens If I Need Surgery

Before an authorized physician performs non-emergency surgery, his or her office will communicate with your employer’s workers’ compensation carrier to obtain authorization or payment for the surgery and to make any other arrangements that need to be made before the surgery.  In an emergency situation, surgery likely will be performed without pre-authorization, but as long as the surgery is for a compensable on-the-job injury, the workers’ compensation carrier should pay for it after receiving the bill.
