According to the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment, “for employees who are injured on the job or develop an occupational disease, this [workers’ compensation] insurance pays for medical expenses and partial wage replacement during periods of temporary disability.”
An occupational illness occurs when a worker becomes sick and the nature of that worker’s job could increase their suffering. It’s important to remember that there must be a clear connection between the job and the illness in order to be compensated.
The Colorado Division of Worker’s Compensation also says, “the health care provider shall prepare a diagnosis-based treatment plan that includes specific treatment goals with expected time frames for completion in all cases where treatment falling within the purview of the medical treatment guidelines continues beyond 6 weeks.”
