If you are hurt at work and file a workers' compensation claim, you are entitled to all necessary medical treatment that is likely to lessen your disability or injury.
Workers' compensation generally pays for surgery, hospitalization, medical supplies, prosthetic devices, and prescriptions.
Keep in mind that in order to receive these benefits you must go to the doctor chosen by your employer or its insurance representative.
