Richmond, VA ( -- One of the important parts of workers' compensation law has to do with how bills get paid for injured workers.

So, states, like Virginia, devote regulatory and legislative attention to that question.

Here's what the Old Dominion requires on payments.

TopicsVa. Rules
When payment must be made, generallyPayment for health care services that the employer does not contest, deny, or consider incomplete must be made to the health care provider within 60 days after receipt of each separate itemization of the health care services provided.
Contested itemizationIf the itemization or a portion of the bill is contested, denied, or considered incomplete, the employer or carrier must notify the health care provider within 45 days after receipt of the bill.
Incomplete claim informationPayment or denial must be made within 60 days after receipt from the health care provider of the information requested by the employer/carrier for an incomplete claim.
InterestPayment due for any properly documented health care services that are neither contested within the 45-day period nor paid within the 60-day period, will be increased by interest at the judgment rate of interest retroactive to the date payment was due.
