L&I Travel Reimbursement

If you’ve been injured at work and have an open L&I Claim for Workers’ Compensation, you have a right to L&I Travel Reimbursement Benefits.

Reimbursement for travel mileage, parking fees, tolls, food, lodging and lost wages may be paid in connection with medical treatment if you are pre-authorized.

Travel Reimbursement Benefits are payments for an injured worker’s travel expenses for any visits to a health care provider that requires traveling a distance of greater than 15 miles. You can be reimbursed for bus or train fare, fuel costs, and parking costs, depending on the mode of transportation.

L&I will often deny requests, however, for travel reimbursements if you:

    1) Are within 15 miles of an L&I approved medical provider, but simply choose not to see that provider; or

    2) Are traveling only to pick up prescription medication; or

    3) The travel reimbursement is not pre authorized (you must get L&I to preauthorize these expenses or they will not be reimbursed)

It is important to note that L&I never reimburses for the first and last 15 miles of the trip – so you are only able to get reimbursed for each mile after mile 31.
