Workers’ compensation is a state-funded insurance program that gives covered employees income and medical benefits if they’re injured while working. Oklahoma employers may choose to provide their employees with this coverage. Most employers will inform you as to whether or not you’re covered under this state plan.
Workers’ compensation pays medical bills and is covered underneath the Oklahoma Workers’ Compensation Act.

If you have health insurance, you will receive an EOB (explanation of benefits) from your insurance company in the mail. Taking the time to be familiar with your benefits will help you make the best decisions when seeking medical care. It is important to note that the EOB is not a bill.
Tulsa ER & Hospital is classified as out-of-network with many insurance companies; however, Tulsa ER & Hospital does honor all in-network deductibles and benefits.
For all cases deemed emergent, Oklahoma state law requires your insurance company to pay for your emergency care, even if the emergency room is classified as out-of-network. The state of Oklahoma empowers patients to use a standard called the prudent layperson standard when determining what constitutes as an emergency.
