Medical Claims

I would like to know if there is any law for employee medical claims occurred during the weekend whereby the employee is not working. As I have an employee claiming medical bills during the weekend (non-working days). 

Is there a rule that states "as long as the employee works for a company, the company is liable for all medical bills to the limit company has set? "

There is no provision in the Employment Act requiring employers to foot medical claims. The payment of medical claims depends entirely on the individual policy of the companies.
