Introducing the EMPLOYERS Injured Employee Hotline

Jul 28, 2016

EMPLOYERS® is pleased to introduce the Injured Employee Hotline, a hotline that is available to policyholders 24 hours a day, seven days a week and is staffed by registered nurses specially trained to provide medical guidance over the phone for new work-related injuries or illnesses. This service is available to injured or ill workers who have not yet received medical treatment. Employees and/or their supervisors can access the hotline by calling 855-365-6010.

Based on symptoms reported by an employee, nurses will recommend the appropriate level of care, such as self-care or referral to a medical provider. The hotline is staffed by nurses fluent in both English and Spanish, with accommodations for other languages.

This value-added service provides EMPLOYERS policyholders with distinct benefits including:

In addition, policyholders may experience a decrease in claims costs by using the Injured Employee Hotline.

This hotline is available for reporting new work-related illnesses or injuries. If an employee has already received treatment from a medical provider, a claim should be reported to EMPLOYERS by phone, fax, e-mail, website or through Loss Control ConnectionSM. Claims should be reported immediately after an injury occurs. If an employee calls during work hours, please provide them with complete privacy during the call. The employee’s personal medical information will be kept confidential in accordance with HIPAA. And remember, if an employee has a medical emergency, please dial 9-1-1.

For more information, please ​contact Patrick Kim, Workers' Compensation Specialist - 925.296.5478.
