What do I Need to Know About Workers’ Compensation Insurance in Washington State?
Most employers operating in the State of Washington carry no-fault workers’ compensation coverage through the Washington Department of Labor & Industries (L&I).
Benefits for workers who are injured or who develop a work-related condition are covered by L&I insurance and can receive benefits including medical treatment by an L&I physician.
Employees who are not able to work after suffering an occupational injury or illness can ask to be compensated for lost wages through this program.
L&I helps Washington workers coordinate a safe and timely return to gainful employment.
If an employer is self‑insured, worker rights and benefit entitlements don’t change. Third Party Administrators (Sedgwick, Everle Vivian, etc.) manage self-insured claims. Your employer should give you the appropriate paperwork to bring in to begin your self-insured claim. Westcare is very familiar with the self-insured process – we are happy to help!

Are you a Lacey, Washington employer looking for an attending L&I healthcare provider?
Washington State businesses who are self-insured or have L&I need to complete an accident report form in order for your employee to receive medical care.
Employers may consider offering a light-duty job to their injured worker until they establish a treatment plan with an approved doctor.
This helps keep claim costs low for employers as L&I will pay 50% of the employee’s wage and certain other costs for the duration of treatment.
