    Question Who Processes Mileage Reimbursement Ic or WC Bureau

    My workers compensation claim was made in the State of: PA

    I'd like to submit for about 900 miles of doctors visits so far in my case. I'm wondering who actually processes this request. Do I send it to the Insurance Company? Or to the state workers compensation bureau? Does a clerk process it?

    I'm wondering because I don't want to open up a can of worms, if, for some reasone, a judge looks at this, or a supervisor who questions everything.

    I figured I'd send in a spreadsheet with all the doctor visits dates, origin/dest, round-trip mileage and use the IRS mileage reimbursement rate. I'd send copies of all the doctors' reports to verify the visits.

    FYI: I'm not driving; people have been taking me to appts. in my car.

    Thanks.

    Usually the IC/CA has a mileage reimbursement request form you use.

    You send this to the CA/IC...not the WC commission/bureau. The IC is the one who reimburses you for the reasonable mileage.
    And, there is already a predetermined rate, set by the state for the mileage you submit.

    Whether or not that is the federal rate... that's up to the state.

    It shouldn't matter who sees your request for mileage reimbursement... you are signing the form under penalty of perjury that the request is accurate to be best of you knowledge...if it's not...don't ask for it.

    Usually it doesn't matter how/who drives you... only IF the IC is providing the transport would there be a difference in the why this is handled.

    You should also check the statute/rule, some states don't allow for full reimbursement...eg. there may be a min/max allowed. One state only allows for mileage beyond 15 miles R/T...another only more than 5 miles o/w...
