If the reason you are under the doctor's care was work related you probably qualify for Workman's Compensation. I would think it would depend on the situation. For instance, you are still able to actively look for work and work then I would say yes. Unemployment usually does not care about if you are under the care of a doctor. They care if you are able to work.

Workers Comp is for workers who were injured or became ill due to working conditions. It would be preferable to attempting to qualify for unemployment benefits.
