So long as you complete a claim form and your physician is informed that your injury is work-related, you should never receive medical bills. Your employer will pay for your medical care (if injury or illness is work-related). Your employer is able to do this through either a workers’ compensation insurance policy or through being self-insured. The claims administrator will pay the actual medical bills.
It is important to note that it is illegal (California Labor Code sec 3751(b)) for any medical provider to bill a worker if they are aware that the injury is work-related or may be work-related.
