If you are injured at work, WSIB may cover the cost of your treatment. In order to obtain funding approval, you will need to establish a WSIB claim. This is done by reporting your injury to your supervisor and seeing a health professional who will complete a Form 8. The worker will also need to complete a Form 7 (Workers report of injury). You can download this form from the WSIB website. Once your claim has been approved, we will obtain funding approval from WSIB. We will also communicate with your employer and WSIB regarding appropriate modified duties while you are recovering. Your treatment costs will be billed directly to WSIB. Clients should be aware that not all workplaces are required to be covered by WSIB.
