Regulation 67-1601 A (1) provides the expenses incurred for travel to receive medical attention which shall be reimbursed to the claimant are mileage to and from a place of medical attention which is more than five miles away from home in accordance with the amount allowed state employees for mileage.

The state employee mileage rate is based upon the standard business mileage rate established by the Internal Revenue Service. Effective January 1, 2019 the reimbursement rate for state employee mileage is 58 cents per mile. This represents a three and half per mile increase from the 2018 rate of 54.5 cents per mile. Therefore, effective January 1, 2019, the new mileage reimbursement rate to and from a place of medical attention is 58 cents per mile.
