How Do I Get Prescription Medications When on Worker’s Compensation?

Live Help NOW   800-809-3776

We talk to a lot of people who have trouble getting prescriptions filled.  Most insurance companies will provide an insurance card for the injured worker to use at a pharmacy similar to a health insurance card.  That insurance card allows the injured worker to simply receive medications at a pharmacy at zero cost to the injured worker.  The cost of the prescription is billed directly to the insurance carrier.

Unfortunately, we run into issues where the insurance card is not activated, the pharmacist says that the medication is not authorized, and our clients are unable to get prescriptions on a timely basis.

Under our Indiana worker’s compensation laws, insurance carriers must provide all medications ordered by the authorized treating physician.  There should be no delay or hiccups in an injured worker’s ability to pick up these medications.

If you run into an issue where prescriptions are not available for you when you present the worker’s compensation insurance card to the pharmacy, please give us a call.  We can help you get the benefits you are entitled to for your claim.
