New Mileage Reimbursement Rate for Tennessee Workers’ Compensation Claims

When an injured worker is required to travel to an authorized medical provider or facility located more than fifteen (15) miles from the injured worker's residence or workplace, then the employee may request reimbursement for their travel expenses.  Since 2011, the mileage reimbursement rate has been $0.47 per mile.  However, effective on January 2, 2022, that rate increased from $0.47 per mile to $0.585 per mile.
