Benefits available

The Minnesota workers' compensation statutes entitle an employee to reasonable and necessary medical treatment or supplies to cure or relieve the effect of the work injury. The employer is required to furnish medical treatment as described in Minnesota Statutes 176.135, subd. 1, which may include psychological, chiropractic, podiatric, surgical and hospital treatment.
