Why Marzzacco Niven & Associates' Adam Crosier and Jesse Rhodeside Believe Governor Wolf Should Veto the Drug Formulary Bill for Injured Workers

The state Legislature recently passed legislation endangering injured workers' access to medications prescribed by their treating physicians, and, unless Governor Wolf takes swift action by vetoing Senate Bill 936, a state-sanctioned list, or formulary, will dictate which drugs injured workers could receive from employers under the Workers' Compensation Act. The formulary, and not the treating physician most familiar with the injured worker, would dictate dosage, duration and number of drugs doctors could prescribe.

4 things to know about your workers' compensation claim

In general, all jobs carry a certain amount of inherent risk. For example, if you work as a delivery driver in Harrisburg, you are at risk of becoming involved in a car accident. Alternatively, you might suffer a back injury from lifting cargo. Regardless of the reason for your injury, if you get hurt on the job, you might be able to file a workers' compensation claim.

Reporting is essential for injured workers to receive lost wages

Most workers who suffer a work-related injury or illness on the job are covered under the Pennsylvania Workers' Compensation Act. As such, they are entitled to receive both lost wages and coverage for medical expenses for any injuries suffered on the job. If a worker dies, then his or her dependents may be entitled to receive death benefits as well.To claim WC benefits, it's important to report any work-related illness or injury to your employer right away. This will give you the highest chance of having your claim paid on.
