Workers' Compensation Medical Benefits

NJSA 34:15-15 controls the provision of medical benefits available to an injured worker under the New Jersey Workers' Compensation Act. This section of the statute provides that an injured employee is entitled to such medical treatment as is necessary to "cure and relieve" the injured worker from the compensable injuries. There is no definite time limit set for the medical treatment. The treatment is required to restore the function of the injured worker as completely as possible. When the authorized treating physicians determine that the injured worker has reached "maximum medical improvement" treatment generally ends.
