Question

My employer has offered me a lump sum settlement cutting off all rights under the Workers' Compensation Act. This will close off my right to payment of future medical treatment by the workers' compensation insurance carrier. Can I get my private insurance or Medicare to pay for my future medical needs?
Answer

Most private insurance contracts exclude payment for work related injuries. In addition, Medicare will not pay for work related medical bills. Therefore, if you agree to a settlement that closes off your right to future medical benefits, you may be responsible personally for all medical treatment necessary for your work injury.
