Subject No. 150-18.1

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

Supersedes Subject No. 150-18.1 dated January 26, 2016

Date: August 29, 2017

As a reminder, the mileage rate for reimbursement to injured workers for travel by automobile on or after January 1, 2017, is 53.5 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.
