General Information

Section 36 of the Workers’ Compensation Act S.Y. 2008 (the "Act") specifies that Yukon Workers’ Compensation Health and Safety Board (YWCHSB) may provide an injured worker with any health care assistance including services, devices, or equipment, necessary to grant relief from a work-related injury. The Act also states YWCHSB may pay for special expenses related to the work-related injury, as determined by YWCHSB.

Purpose

This policy determines when YWCHSB will pay for special expenses designed to assist an injured worker with the activities of daily living that the worker was able to perform prior to the work-related injury. It clarifies the type of support that YWCHSB may provide to assist an injured worker, and how services will be monitored to ensure they meet the continuing needs of the worker.
