Workers Compensation FAQ: Do I get reimbursed for my travel expenses when I go to the doctor?


Question: Do I get reimbursed for my travel expenses when I go to the doctor?

Answer: Yes, if the round trip distance is more than ten miles from your home. Effective August 23, 2004, the South Carolina Workers Compensation Commission has approved allowance for trips to a pharmacy if the round trip distance is more than ten miles from your home. You should be reimbursed for the round trip mileage at the allowed state employees for mileage. Effective January 1, 2018, the reimbursement rate is 54.5 cents per mile.
