#4 - (1) at what point that an employer is required to pay for treatment and any lost wages. Is it after state worker's comp claim is accepted?
(2) I called our insurance carrier. I was told MO has tight up work's comp coverage and deny long term injuries such as carbon tunnel or back pain due to long period of working in that company.
(3) if company has to pay for such, how long does the company cover the treatment and loss of wages?
1) #2 is this an updated clause? I hear different version b/w you and our insurance agent.
2) "An employer is required to pay for treatment and any lost wages if an employee is unable to work due to work-related injuries." - is this paid through worker's comp or by company?
