All seminars are open to U of I faculty members, staff, postdocs and graduate students and are recorded for future viewings. See the website for more information.

Learn About Workers’ Compensation Claims

U of I established a designated providers program for workers’ compensation cases that occur in Idaho. The plan applies to claims submitted on or after April 1, 2021. The designated providers will apply only to workers’ compensation injuries. Employees who need emergency care are directed to use the nearest emergency room. After emergency care, injured employees must use a designated provider for follow-up care. Designated providers will strengthen workers’ compensation benefits for employees. Designated providers will help employees make safe, strong recoveries from accidents, and provide appropriate referrals as needed. The designated providers will provide an “occupational health” approach to workers’ compensation care, which should help employees make better, fuller recoveries from injuries. For more information, visit the website. Contact risk@uidaho.edu with questions.
