If you are injured on the job and cannot continue working, the employer’s insurance carrier may be paying you through workers’ compensation. However, they have a 180 day period to pay for your medical bills or send weekly checks without accepting liability.
During this time period, you may receive a Form 106, “Insurer’s Notification of Termination or Modification of Weekly Compensation During Payment-Without-Prejudice Period.” If you receive this form, it means the insurer has decided to modify or terminate your workers’ compensation benefits. The insurer must provide at least 7 days’ notice to terminate or modify your payments during this period. If you are still unable to work, you may file a claim with the DIA to reinstate your benefits.
