Heads Up #1

Heads Up – The California Workers’ Compensation Insurance Rating Bureau recently issued a bulletin reminding everyone of the requirement that carriers report the cost of all claims for which medical care is provided and medical costs are incurred, including those involving first aid treatment and even if the insurer did not make the payment. This means that all injuries that require any medical care and incur any medical costs must be reported to the carrier so that the carrier can 1) reimburse the employer for any covered medical expenses that the employer has paid directly and 2) fulfill our statutory reporting obligations.
