File a Workers’ Comp Claim

Employer

Forms and reporting deadlines differ by jurisdiction, as workers’ compensation insurance statutes differ state to state. For that reason, you may need to ask your agent or adjuster for the precise information you might need in your respective state.

If your employee suffers an injury while at work, an industrial injury report must be filed with CopperPoint and in accordance with the respective state. To access the proper form, click on the state.

What other ways can I file a workers’ comp claim?

  • The form can be submitted to CopperPoint via email to ReportaClaim@copperpoint.com or by U.S. mail. The employer should complete the industrial injury form, not the employee.
  • Each state has its own regulations relative to a filing deadline. To provide efficient, appropriate service, and to contain costs, the industrial injury form should be filled out and filed accurately as soon as possible.
  • Employers are required to report all in-patient hospitalizations, amputations or loss of an eye to the Occupational and Safety Administration (OSHA), or the state’s equivalent agency. It also is important to notify CopperPoint at 1.800.231.1363 so the claim process can be initiated.
  • Provide the employee with the Script Advisor Workers’ Comp First Fill Prescription Card, so he/she can fill the initial prescription related to the industrial injury.
  • When we receive the industrial injury report, we will review the information, investigate and make a decision regarding the claim.
  • In the unfortunate event that a fatality occurs, the incident must be reported with 8 hours to OSHA, or the state’s equivalent agency. Other state departments may also need to be contacted, and it is important to notify CopperPoint at 1.800.231.1363 so the claim process can be initiated.

Medical Provider

If you are a medical provider, please complete the proper form for your state and have the injured worker sign it. The completed and signed document should be mailed within the state’s reporting guidelines. Be sure to fill out the form completely.

Please include your physical address, not a Post Office Box number.
