Am I eligible?
Employees who suffer on-the-job injuries or illnesses may be eligible for benefits under the Virginia Workers' Compensation Act. The Virginia Workers’ Compensation Commission oversees the Act and coverage compliance.
The 3 types of Workers’ Compensation claim categories are:
- Record Only: Record Only claims involve no lost time and no physician or hospital care. This claim category may include simple first aid.
- Medical Only: Medical Only claims involve physician or hospital care and less than 7 calendar days of lost time expected.
- Indemnity: Indemnity claims involve physician or hospital care and greater than or equal to 7 calendar days of lost work time expected.
Claim category is determined on behalf of the injured employee upon report of accident or illness.
Claims submitted by Medical Center team members and Academic Division employees (Classified Staff, Faculty, Faculty Wage, Graduate Students who are paid as an employee through Workday, Hourly Student Wage, Hourly Temporary Employees, and University Staff) will be reviewed and approved/denied by the Commonwealth’s third-party Workers’ Compensation administrator, MC Innovations.
Claims submitted by University Physicians Group employees will be reviewed and approved/denied by their third-party administrator, Broadspire.
