Change in Rate of Reimbursement to Claimants for Travel by Automobile

Supersedes Subject No. 150-18.1 dated January 24, 2013

Date: February 11, 2014

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

The mileage rate for reimbursement to claimants for travel by automobile on or after January 1, 2014 shall be 56 cents per mile.

In those instances where claimants are entitled to reimbursement for travel expenses, carriers and self-insurers will allow claimants reimbursement for travel in accordance with this rate.
