How Long After An Injury Do I Have To Report It To My Employer?

Under Ohio`s our new managed­care program, BWC and the managed­care organizations (MCOs) have made filing a claim easy. Injured workers, employers and health­care providers should report an injury to their assigned MCO. If they choose, the injured worker may now report the injury directly to BWC through the Internet by submitting the First Report of Injury on­line to BWC.

Your doctor will take the necessary information and either submit the injury report electronically or fax a First Report of Injury, Occupational Disease or Death FROI­1 form to the MCO within 24 hours.

Once you receive medical attention, if you haven`t already, let your employer know you`ve filed a claim. BWC is here to help you throughout the claims process. If you miss eight or more days of work, a BWC claims service specialist (CSS) will call you within one week of your claim being filed with your MCO.
