Workers’ Compensation is a no-fault insurance that provides medical treatment and partial wage replacement for covered workers whose injuries or illnesses arose out of and in the course of employment.
Detailed information about filing a claim and obtaining follow-up care is available on the EHS Workers' Compensation page.
The employee or authorized volunteer is eligible the first day of work. Volunteers are not typically covered by Workers' Compensation. Volunteer work is evaluated on a case-by-case basis as to whether or not the volunteer will be protected by workers' compensation.
Reporting an Injury
Employees (including student employees) injured at work have a right to file a workers compensation claim. It is extremely important that a claim is filed with CorVel if the employee has sought medical attention. Employees are also encouraged to call CorVel even if medical attention is not necessary at the time of the report.
- Seek appropriate medical attention. If emergency care is needed, call 911 or use any emergency room.
- If medical care is sought, inform your provider that you are filing a workers compensation claim so they do not bill your personal insurance.
- Follow up care must be coordinated through CorVel and the designated providers program.
- Notify your supervisor of the incident.
- Report accident/incident to CorVel at 844-213-2099.
In order to receive income benefits, the time lost from work must be authorized by your treating physician. Income benefits are payable if you are disabled from work more than five calendar days. Benefits are payable from the sixth day after disability unless you are hospitalized overnight or disability exceeds 14 days. Under these conditions, benefits are payable from the date of disability.
