NH mileage re-imbursement for meds ?
#1
Does NH allow for mileage re-imbursement to and from the pharmacy to pick up meds related to the injury ?

I could have sworn that my last re-imbursement included that.

Now the adjuster is telling me no, and removed almost $2,000 worth of mileage (back to 2006) !

Also, is there an RSA # to reference that ?

I looked but was not able to find one.

Thanks

looks like if there is an obligation it comes from case law and is not specifically referenced in the statutes.

Thanks for the quick reply.

I followed that first link and it brought me to this :
Payment of related medical bills including mileage to doctors' visits and prescription reimbursement

Where another link brought me to this :
RSA 281-A:23

This is what I found :
----------------------------------------------------------------------
281-A:23 Medical, Hospital, and Remedial Care. –
I. An employer subject to this chapter, or the employer's insurance carrier, SHALL FURNISH, OR CAUSE TO BE FURNISHED to an injured employee reasonable medical, surgical, and hospital services, remedial care, nursing, MEDICINES, and mechanical and surgical aids for such period as the nature of the injury may require.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Isn’t this the same statement that requires the Workers' Comp insurance to pay for doctors visits and mileage ?

Wouldn’t ‘CAUSE TO BE FURNISHED’ include paying for mileage to get those MEDICINES, the same as they do for doctors visits (since MEDICINES is even listed in the same sentence with everything else) ?

So, unless I'm reading it wrong, mileage to pick up meds should be paid by WC insurance.

Any thoughts ?

Also, I did leave a message with the DOL questioning this.

Just waiting on a reply now.

whether it can be interpreted to include mileage probably depends on the caselaw.
hopefully the commission will be able to answer that.
