With the exception of medical creditors who have provided the injured worker with medical treatment that relates to the work accident, creditors, in general, cannot make a claim against your worker’s compensation settlement [Ind. Code §22-3-2-17(a)].

In the case of a related medical provider, the provider can file an Application for Adjustment of Claim for Provider Fee (Form 18487) with the Worker’s Compensation Board, which adds them as a party in the worker’s compensation lawsuit. They would then have to be considered in any worker’s compensation settlement award.
