If you return to work, but continue medical treatment, your employer would NOT be required to pay you for the time you take off to go for medical visits. The employer is only required to let you have the time off from work, if these visits can not be scheduled outside your normal work hours. The insurer must reimburse you for reasonable travel expenses. You are compensated for lost work time only if you are going for a medical evaluation at the insurer's request and the appointment conflicts with your normal, scheduled working hours.
