Creditors and Your Worker’s Compensation Claim

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.
