Your Rights and Responsibilities

Our mission at BWC is to provide a quality, customer-focused workers' compensation insurance system for employers and employees. But we can't do that alone.

All parties involved in the workers' compensation process including employers, providers and injured workers, must understand their role in making the system work.

Below are just some of your rights and responsibilities as an injured worker:

  • Remember to use your claim number every time you contact BWC, your MCO or your self-insuring employer.
  • Give your claim number to all of the doctors who are treating your work-related injury.
  • Contact the claims service specialist in your local customer service office or your self-insuring employer to answer your questions.
