Workers Comp - HMO

In Mackey v. W.C.A.B., No. 1903 C.D. 2009 (Feb. 17, 2010) the court affirmed the Workers’ Compensation Appeal Board’s decision to deny a claim petition of a home health aide. The court concluded that the home health aide was en route to a patients home and did not have a fixed place of employment.

The court further held that the injuries sustained in an automobile accident that occurred en route are not compensable by workers’ comp.
