Should the injured employee receive doctor's bills?

No.  A healthcare provider should not bill or sue an injured employee for all or part of the costs of health care services provided to the injured employee unless:

  1. The injury is found not to be compensable under workers’ compensation law
  2. The physician, who was not authorized by the employer at the time the services were rendered, knew that he/she was not an authorized physician; or
  3. The employee knew the physician was not authorized and it was not an emergency.
