When a University employee is injured, the most important thing is to secure appropriate medical treatment. Once this has been done, the injury or claim should be reported according to the following steps:
- The injured employee has the responsibility of reporting the work-related injury immediately to his/her department head or supervisor. This must be done as soon as an injury is realized or suspected.
- The department head/supervisor has the responsibility of reporting the claim as soon as possible to PMA Insurance Company, via 1-888-476-2669. This should be done before the end of the workday on which the injury occurred.
- In order to assure that the medical treatment will be paid for by the University or insurance carrier, the injured employee must select from one of the designated health care providers listed on the "Posted Panel List". This list can be found on the employee bulletin boards and on the Human Resources website.
- The injured employee must continue to treat with one of these providers listed for 90 days from the date of first visit.
- After the 90 day period, if the employee still needs treatment, he/she may choose to go to another health care provider. However, the employee must notify the University within 5 days of the first visit to this other provider, in order to assure payment of medical treatment from that provider.
Please refer to the posted panel list for health care providers and further instructions. If there are any questions - please call Annette Lucidi at Ext. 9-4239.
