If you are talking about the med you get for workers comp pain they do pay the 100% (do not use your ins.)... (doctors visits as well) 100% If you have been injured on the job, Worker's Compensation is responsible for the WHOLE thing. It is not responsible for the 20% copay for your health insurance.

It is illegal for you to file a work related claim on your personal insurance. Such claims must be covered by work comp per the Worker's Compensation Act. If your health insurance finds out, they can demand repayment.
