Answers to Your Questions About Workers' Compensation in Illinois
What benefits are covered under the Workers' Compensation Act in Illinois?
According to the rules set forth in the official state guidelines for
workers' compensation, employers are required to pay for all medical
care needed to treat an employee who was injured or made ill on the job.
Included in the employer's costs will be coverage for first aid, emergency
services, doctor visits, surgery, hospitalization, medication, prosthetics, and more.
Who will pay for my medical care after I am injured on the job?
Assuming your employer does not dispute your medical bill, he or she will
be responsible for making direct payments to your medical provider. Typically,
the employee will not be expected to cover your copayments or deductible.
How long can I receive temporary total disability (TTD) benefits?
TTD benefits are paid by the employer to the employee for as long as the
employee is out of work. In some cases, TTD benefits will be stopped once
the employee has reached maximum medical improvement.
What are temporary partial disability benefits (TPD)?
TPD benefits are typically received by injured employees who are in the
process of healing but who have agreed to work on light duty, either part
time or full time. TBD benefits are provided to employees who are making
less than they otherwise would have made had they never been injured.
