New procedures for workers’ compensation injury reporting
The process for reporting a non-life threatening on-the-job injury under the University of Florida Workers’ Compensation Program is changing effective March 1. Currently, an injured employee and the employee’s supervisor contact the UF Workers’ Compensation office to report the injury and receive authorization for treatment. Effective March 1, if a non-life threatening on-the-job injury occurs, the injured employee should notify his or her supervisor and immediately contact AmeriSys, the State of Florida’s medical case management vendor, by calling 1-800-455-2079.
Treatment for any non-life threatening work-related injury or illness must be authorized by AmeriSys prior to obtaining medical treatment. For more information, please contact UF Workers’ Compensation at (352) 392-4940 or visit http://hr.ufl.edu/manager-resources/employee-relations/workers-compensation/.
