Per state law, OSHR administers the State Workers’ Compensation Program for all claims arising in State agencies except the Department of Public Instruction which has a separate program.
Eligible employees who experience a work-related injury or illness receive medical treatment and other benefits as provided under the Workers' Compensation Act and OSHR Workers’ Compensation Policy. The State is self-insured for workers’ compensation liabilities. OSHR contracts with vendor(s) to provide workers’ compensation claim administration and related services. Each State agency is responsible for paying individual claim costs.
