Reporting a Claim

The sooner BWC hears about your injury, the sooner you can start to receive benefits when the claim is allowed.

BWC understands what a difficult time it can be after suffering a work-related injury. That's why we want to make sure the workers' compensation process is as simple and smooth for you as possible. Our goal is to get you back to work quickly and safely.

Under our new managed-care program, BWC and the managed care organizations (MCOs) have made filing a claim easy.

  • You should report your injury to your assigned MCO.
  • If you choose, you may report the injury directly to BWC through the Internet by submitting the First Report of Injury.
