If the injury is minor, do I still have to report it?
You should tell your supervisor/principal about any work-related injury, no matter how small. Without proper medical attention, even a simple situation can lead to problems and the incident/injury needs to be documented.
Do I have to use a BWC-certified medical provider?
Yes, under the Ohio BWC Health Partnership Program (HPP) you must seek treatment from a BWC-certified medical provider for work-related injuries. If you do not, the Ohio BWC will not pay for your care. However, if it is an emergency, your initial care will be covered for a non-BWC certified Provider for a work-related injury deemed compensable by the Ohio BWC. Check with your physician or check for BWC certified providers at www.ohiobwc.com.
