Effective July 1, 2011, the Nebraska mileage reimbursement rate for travel while on workers’ compensation became 55.5 cents per mile. This is for travel to seek medical treatment, pick up medications, or while participating in a vocational rehabilitation plan. This conforms to the reimbursement rate paid to State of Nebraska employees.
As the economy continues to struggle and money is tight, injured workers should make sure to keep track of their miles of travel so they can be reimbursed for their out of pocket expenses.
