If you are injured on the job and need medical treatment, you must be seen by a workers’ comp in-network provider. If treatment is received by an out-of-network primary care physician, this will be at the expense of the injured employee and will not be covered by workers’ compensation.
- For a life-threatening emergency, call 9-1-1 or seek medical treatment at the nearest Emergency Room.
- For non-emergency injuries, contact Risk Management Services (RMS) for assistance in obtaining authorization for medical care.
- If you are unable to speak with a person in RMS, during regular business hours, treatment should be obtained at NOVA Medical Center or the closest CareNow facility. Please note that Web Check-In is not available for initial visits related to workers’ comp.
An injured employee is not required to seek medical treatment if they do not wish to do so. The supervisor must complete the Employee Injury Report . If the employee determines they need medical treatment at a later date, contact RMS for authorization of treatment.
