How Does L&I Workers’ Compensation Insurance Work?
The Washington Department of Labor & Industries offers no-fault workers’ compensation coverage for most employers in the state.
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 attending physician.
If a worker is unable to work due to an industrial injury or occupational disease, they may be able to receive certain wage replacement benefits 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 and we are happy to help!
Can I Choose My Own Workers’ Comp Doctor?
Westcare Clinic physicians are considered “attending physicians” in the L&I insurance network, which means if you’ve been injured or become ill from work, and your claim is accepted, we can treat you and your care will be covered.
Labor and Industry Attending Medical Providers Help You Avoid Disability
Our workers’ comp physicians ensure that you receive the right care for the entire duration of your injury or illness. Our partnership with the Washington State Department of Labor & Industries means our patients return to work sooner and avoid long-term disability.
Inappropriate or delayed medical care is common when patients seek treatment from a non-L&I preferred provider.
Westcare Clinic L&I physicians assist you with opening your workers’ compensation claim, ensuring that your care is managed efficiently. Our doctors use best practices and utilize the many resources that Washington’s Department of L&I has available.
Westcare Clinic’s Work Injury Doctors Help you Return to Paid Employment
Missing work because of an injury can have far-reaching consequences. But the State of Washington has programs in place to help workers avoid occupational illness or injury-related hardships.
Partnering with an L&I doctor for ongoing care means your finances don’t have to be compromised. L&I even offers time-loss compensation if your injury is severe enough that it prevents you from working.
Approved Workers Compensation Doctors for Olympia Employers
If you are an employer in the State of Washington and are self-insured or have L&I, make sure you complete the employer section of the accident report form and ensure your worker receives prompt medical attention. You may then want to consider assigning your employee to a lighter-duty job while they seek care, but only if their doctor approves it.
If approved, this benefits you by keeping claim costs low. L&I will pay 50% of your employee’s base wage and some related costs during treatment.
