Reimbursement Requests in New York: Claimant’s Record of Medical and Travel Expenses (C-257)

Under New York’s Workers’ Compensation Law, the claimant is entitled to be reimbursed for any drugs or apparatus properly prescribed by the treating physician.  Additionally, the claimant is entitled to receive reimbursement for fares, mileage and other necessary expenses going to and from his or her medical appointments.

To receive proper reimbursement, the claimant must keep record of such expenses and provide the carrier with same.  The Board instructs the claimant to submit the completed C-257 form and copies of all receipt or bills to the carrier for reimbursement.  Please note that the claimant must provide a complete form and copies of all receipts or available bills.  Please note that a C-257 form, itself, is not a mandatory filing.  The claimant may keep track of his or her expenses in any formation.  However, simply submitting a C-257 form is not necessarily a sufficient record.

Defending New York Workers’ Compensation Discrimination Cases

Under New Yorker’s Workers’ Compensation Law § 120, an employer may not fire or otherwise discriminate against an employee who has claimed or attempted to claim workers’ compensation benefits.  If there is an allegation that an employer discriminated against an employee because he/she has attempted to claim compensation benefits, they must file two copies of a Discharge or Discrimination Complaint (Form DC-120 ) with the Workers’ Compensation Discrimination Unit. Any complaint alleging an unlawful discriminatory practice must be filed within two years of the commission of such practice.

The Discrimination Unit will notify the employer of the Complaint by issuing a “Notice to Employer and Request for Information Regarding Discharge or Discrimination Complaint” (Form DC-130). The DC-130 Form must be completed by the employer and returned to the Discrimination Unity within 30 days of receipt.  A trial will ultimately be scheduled by the Board to address the Discrimination action.
