Compensation for rehabilitation

Workers’ compensation insurance compensates for the injured person’s rehabilitation if the injured person’s ability to work or functional ability or opportunities for earning a living have deteriorated or if it is probable that they could deteriorate later materially.  

Compensable rehabilitative measures are: 

  1. Vocational rehabilitation
  2. Additional cost arising from assisted living
  3. Assistive devices which the severely injured person needs in the activities of daily living  
  4. Necessary alterations to the severely injured person’s home 
  5. Interpretation services due to a sight, hearing or speech impairment  
  6. Adaptation training

Necessary travel and accommodation expenses arising from rehabilitation  are compensable.
