I am looking for some help with workers comp. I am in a highly unusual position, whereby I am British and living in the UK, but covered by workers comp privately (long story). My income benefits are provided by a private insurance company at a rate that matches the rate paid in the state where my American employer is registered.
I have only just been made aware that workers compensation can extend to equipment and adaptations et cetera. The insurance company have refused repeatedly to share with me the policy document for me to be able to understand what I'm entitled to, so I am kind of left in the dark guessing. I'm told I need medical proof that I need equipment like a wheelchair or an adapted vehicle. I don't know how I could get a doctor to write a letter like that. I cannot get a lawyer either in the UK or US because of the international dimension of the case.
If you got workers comp, can you tell me what other equipment and adaptations you got and how you were able to get it?
Hi Zambi. I've never gotten workers comp, but I've read your post and want you to know that I'm putting my mind to your question. For me, even living in the US, I find that agencies "play their cards close to their chest", not wanting to divulge exactly how their decision-making-process works. It's exasperating.
I did a Google search "worker's comp prescriptions for wheelchairs" and found these. Maybe something here will give you ideas for further searches?

I’m on workers comp, a big part of it is the insurance company your employer has. I’ve gotten all kinds of equipment, wheelchairs. Chair add on’s, home mods, etc. Basically anything that can be deemed medically necessary to make or improve injured persons life easier. The doctor should be able to write a letter of medical necessity to justify what you need. There’s a lot of technicality in it and workers comp law varies from state to state
