Workers' Compensation Overview
Coverage [MN Statute Chapter 176]
Workers’ compensation covers SPPS paid employees who are injured while at work. Coverage includes:
- Medical care related to the injury, as long as it is reasonable and necessary.
- Wage-loss benefits for part of your income loss.
- Benefits for permanent damage to a body function.
- Benefits to your dependents if you die of a work injury.
- Vocational rehabilitation services if you cannot return to your job or to the employer you had before your injury.
- Travel mileage to obtain medical treatment and/or for certain vocational rehabilitation activities.
Workers’ compensation is coordinated with long-term disability benefits, but not with short-term disability benefits. It is possible to receive pro-rated benefits from long-term disability while receiving workers’ compensation benefits.
