Workers’ Compensation Claim Information

Workers’ Compensation Medical treatment & New Initial Treatment Provider Network Guidelines

Effective July 1, 2017 the new Initial Treatment Provider Network went into effect for all workers’ compensation claims. Department of Administrative Services Statewide Workers’ Compensation Division, in partnership with Gallagher Bassett and the Prime PPO Network, have aligned with 10 occupational medical providers throughout the state to provide the best quality care and convenience for State of Connecticut employee’s workers’ compensation injuries.

In the case of an emergency, the injured employee should seek treatment at the closest emergency facility. In the case of non-emergency injury, the injured employee is required to attend the initial visit with one of the designated initial treatment providers. If the injured employee chooses not to visit the designated initial treatment provider or treats outside the workers’ compensation provider network, they may risk suspension of their benefits per order of the Workers’ Compensation Commission.

The injured employee may choose an attending physician AFTER the initial visit with the State of CT Workers Compensation provider network.

For a complete list of in network providers, please visit the following website: http://ct.primehealthservices.com/Home/Search
