Mileage rate for medical and medical-legal travel expenses will increase July 1, 2011

The mileage rate for medical and medical-legal travel expenses will be increased to 55.5 cents per mile effective July 1, 2011. This rate must be paid for travel on or after July 1, 2011 regardless of the date of injury.

Labor Code section 4600, in conjunction with Government Code section 19820 and the Department of Personnel Administration regulations, establishes the rate payable for mileage reimbursement for medical and medical-legal expenses and ties it to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). The updated mileage reimbursement form is posted on the DWC Web site at http://www.dir.ca.gov/dwc/forms.html.
