Worker’s Compensation

Worker’s compensation may available for nurses with PTSD who meet certain criteria.

Registered nurses suffering from PTSD who provided direct patient care for at least 90 days in Washington state can file a claim to receive worker’s compensation benefits for mental health coverage. A mental health provider will be required to confirm a PTSD diagnosis. This visit will be covered if a claim has already been filed.
