Mileage Reimbursement & Travel Arrangements for Doctor’s Appointments Related to your Work Injury



If the doctor your employer’s insurance carrier selects is outside of your county of employment, then you will receive gas money or money for food when making trips to see their doctor.

The pay per mile is a rate set by the State of Indiana. The current rate is $0.44 per mile. You will not be paid anything more for wear and tear on your vehicle.

Your meals and lodging may also be reimbursed depending on the length of travel required. However, if someone travels with you to the appointment, his or her meals are not covered under the law.

If you do not have a car to get to the doctor’s appointment, and it is a doctor selected by the insurance carrier, then the insurance carrier may make arrangements for you to get there. The adjuster for your claim should be contacted to discuss this further.
