Types of Arkansas Workers' Compensation Benefits
Arkansas workers' compensation coverage offers the following benefits:
- Medical Benefits
The cost of your medical treatment is covered as long as your workers' compensation carrier approves the doctor treating you. Expenses covered include:
- Doctor's visits
- Surgical procedures
- Lab tests
- X-rays and diagnostic tests
- Hospital care
- Prescription drugs
- Medical equipment (such as crutches)
- Medical supplies ordered by approved physicians
- Rehabilitation Services
Workers' compensation covers the cost of physical rehabilitation related to medical treatment. If your injury or illness results in permanent disability, you may be entitled to vocational rehabilitation—or services and job training for work you're able to perform.
- Cash Benefits
Cash benefits—or indemnity benefits—are available to workers who miss work due to work-related injuries or illnesses.
- Temporary Total Disability
Temporary total disability payments are designed to provide financial support during your healing period. These benefits are calculated at 66-2/3% of your average weekly wages over the past 52 weeks, up to a maximum set by state law.
- Permanent Partial Disability
Injuries that result in permanent impairment, such as the loss of a limb, can qualify you to keep receiving permanent partial disability benefits after you return to work.
- Permanent and Total Disability
If your doctor and workers' compensation carrier conclude that your injury or illness prevents you from working in any job, you are entitled to total and permanent disability payments for life.
- Wage Loss
If you're unable to earn the same wages you did before your injury, you may be eligible for wage loss compensation. A judge determines the amount of compensation you receive based on a variety of factors.
- Temporary Total Disability
