Alaska Department of Administration, Violent Crimes Compensation Board

Medical Bills

Adopted 1/8/2012

In cases where the Board has already determined at a Board meeting that a claim is eligible for compensation, the Board will authorize payment of additional medical bills for treatment that was self-evidently required either at the time of the original incident or subsequently as a direct result of injuries arising from that incident, without having to reauthorize payment at a further Board meeting.  If there is any question as to whether or not the treatment was directly linked to the original incident and/or injuries arising from that incident, the bills will be referred back to the Board for consideration at a Board meeting.  Requests for prescription medical refills must always be referred back to the Board.
