When participating in a vocational rehabilitation plan approved by the court, your weekly temporary benefits and medical costs will continue to be paid by your employer/insurer. The fee for evaluation and for the development and implementation of the vocational rehabilitation plan will be paid by your employer/insurer. The required costs of the approved vocational rehabilitation plan such as transportation, tuition, books/supplies, and if required, the reasonable costs of room and board will be paid from the Workers’ Compensation Trust Fund administered by the court. All expenses must have prior approval from one of the court’s vocational rehabilitation specialists. Note: Some costs, for example child care services, are not covered by the Workers’ Compensation Trust Fund.
