Injured workers are entitled to request reimbursement for their travel expenses. Mileage reimbursement is a workers’ compensation benefit for injured workers who travel more than 15 miles one way from their residence or workplace to an authorized medical provider or facility.

The Tennessee workers’ comp mileage reimbursement rate mirrors the Comprehensive Travel Regulations Policy for state employees. That policy adopted the IRS business standard mileage rate as the reimbursement rate of the State.

The mileage reimbursement rates change over time. View the rates dating back to 1993.
