A few Questions
#21
In PA, if medical treatment is available outside of your working hours, you will not be reimbursed for missed time if you choose to obtain this treatment during working hours.

Unless treatment is not available locally, you will not be reimbursed for mileage to obtain this treatment. Most judges in PA would consider 16 miles to be local.

Finally, PA WC does not provide any compensation for pain and suffering.

This 16 mile is to go to Physical Therapy and I am doing this 3 times a week, that is 48 miles per week. I've been doing this going on 4 months now. That really adds up mileage and fuel costs on my vehicle. Would that make any difference? Almost 200 mile a month I've but on my vehicle traveling to therapy.

think Mr Belt answered that earlier. If in doubt, turn in the mileage, and see where it leads. you may get reimbursed. The most will happen, they will say no

How about if I quit going to therapy, could they ( WC ) hold that against me for any reason ? Or if I were to only go 2X a week instead of 3X.

if you are not talking to your doctor and updating them with your issues, you are not doing the things you need to do to recover.
if therapy is helping, you need to continue.
if it isn't and cause financial issues you need to tell the doctor.
please take charge of your claim, you're one who suffers if it goes bad.
don't just sit in the back seat and let everyone else drive.
the best way is to learn about the comp system.
go to the state website and read.
