Q: If I get a Notice of Ability to Return to Work, does that mean my workers’ compensation benefits stop or I have to go to work?

A: No, not necessarily. Call us immediately if you get one of these notices, however.

This notice is a statement by the insurance company doctor stating that he or she thinks you can work. If your employer offers you a job, it is important, in many cases, to give it a try and also absolutely critical that you have your doctor put in writing what your restrictions are.
