Is Botox Treatment Covered by DOL-OWCP?
Botox injections are not typically covered by workers’ compensation for injured federal workers. However, there may be some cases where they may be covered, such as if the injections are necessary to treat a work-related injury or to prevent further injury.
If you are an injured federal worker who is considering Botox injections, you should consult with your doctor and with the workers’ compensation office to see if your treatment may be covered.
Here are some additional things to keep in mind:
- Botox injections for a lip flip are a cosmetic procedure, and workers’ compensation is generally not intended to cover cosmetic procedures.
- Botox injections can be expensive, and workers’ compensation may not cover the full cost of the procedure.
- Botox injections are not without risks, and there is a risk of side effects, such as bruising, swelling, and pain.
If you are considering Botox injections, you should weigh the risks and benefits carefully.
If you have any questions about whether Botox injections may be covered by federal workers’ compensation, you should contact your workers’ compensation office.
