Virginia Allows for Reimbursement of Rehabilitation Expenses

The Virginia Workers’ Commission recognizes the difficulties workers have in trying to get healthy enough to work again. One of those difficulties is advancing a lot of funds that they do not really have. Workers who keep accurate records should get reimbursement for the following vocational rehabilitation related expenses, if they are reasonable:

  • Mileage costs to vocational rehabilitation meetings
  • Obtaining or returning applications
  • Attending interviews
  • Costs incurred for telephone calls
  • Photocopying
  • Postage
  • Obtaining DMV and other records

“If the claimant does not have access to transportation, it is the responsibility of the employee to notify the vocational rehabilitation provider. The vocational rehabilitation provider should contact the carrier regarding the issue and make appropriate arrangements as directed/approved by the carrier to insure the employee’s attendance at meetings and interviews. This may include the carrier forwarding mileage payments in advance or arranging appropriate alternative transportation. The employee must provide information explaining why transportation is/is not available.”
