Carpel tunnel is covered by Utah workers compensation when caused by work.   The problem is determining that the work caused the problem.

There are some studies that state typing does not contribute to carpel tunnel syndrome, but there are others that state that wrist position, forcefulness and the repetitive action involved in typing can contribute to CT.

Start by discussing the problem with your doctor.  Describe improper keyboard heights, the way you type (are you a hard typist or extra fast), and anything else that would explain why your typing is causing problems.  If your doctor says that typing is contributing, talk to an attorney ASAP.
