pre-op hours not covered?

Recommended Posts

I had a surgery as a result of a work injury.

Any time I spent at the care provider was usually covered and paid by workers compensation. However, a couple of days before the surgery, the care provider scheduled a pre-op visit (to have everything set up for the day of the surgery, including registration/admission to the surgical facility, etc) that took almost half of the day. The employer was notified of that appointment at least 2 weeks in advance.

My HR says that pre-op time is not paid by workers compensation, and wants me to use personal/sick/vacation hours instead. Is that the way it should be, given that this visit was work injury-related? I leave in Texas.

Thank you for any input.
