Subject No. 150-18.1

Change in Rate of Reimbursement to Injured Workers
for Travel by Automobile

Supersedes Subject No. 150-18.1 dated August 25, 2015

Date: January 26, 2016

As a reminder, the mileage rate for reimbursement to injured workers for travel by automobile on or after January 1, 2016, shall be 54 cents per mile.

In accordance with the Board resolution adopted on February 20, 1990, the mileage rate for reimbursement to injured workers for travel by automobile is the same rate that management/confidential state employees are reimbursed for travel by automobile.

In those instances where injured workers are entitled to reimbursement for travel expenses, insurers will allow injured workers reimbursement for travel in accordance with this rate.

A table of the travel reimbursement rates from 2000 to the present appears below.
