WORKERS' COMPENSATION PROGRAM
Employees who incur work related injuries or illnesses are eligible to receive medical treatment through the New Jersey Worker's Compensation Program. Under this program the employee's initial medical treatment is scheduled through the Health Center, located in Linden Hall, and coordinated by Horizon Casualty Services; a managed care service contracted by the state of New Jersey.
It is the employees’ responsibility to submit all medical documentation in a timely manner! There are no out-of-pocket expenses for the medical services authorized by Horizon Casualty Services. Unauthorized medical expenses elected by the employee shall, however, become the sole responsibility of the employee. The procedures for obtaining treatment for work related injuries or illnesses are provided in the following section. It is important to read and follow the procedures as outlined to ensure prompt medical treatment.
PROCEDURES FOR RECEIVING TREATMENT AND REPORTING YOUR INJURY/ILLNESS
When either your life or limb is threatened, seek care immediately. You should contact the Campus Police by dialing extension 911 from any campus phone. Campus Police will make all necessary arrangements for your emergency care.
Please be aware that you are responsible for reporting your injury to the Health Center or Human Resources and your supervisor as soon as possible.
Step 1: Report your injury or illness to your supervisor immediately and you should report to the Health Center to complete all the required paperwork. The phone number for the Health Center is 856-256-4333.
Step 2: A representative from the Health Center will assist you in completing an Initial Incident Report Form and the Employer's First Report of Accidental Injury or Occupational Disease Form and report your injury to Human Resources. If you feel that you need medical treatment, you will be referred to a Worker's Compensation Primary Care Physician (PCP), Life Care Occupational.
Step 3: Visit your assigned Horizon Casualty Services PCP. Your PCP will carefully examine you and treat your injury/illness. The doctor will coordinate all the medical care associated with your condition. If necessary, you will be referred by the PCP to a participating specialist.
Step 4: Following every doctor's visit, you are responsible for notifying the Human Resources and your supervisor on the status of your condition. Each time you see your treating physician you will receive a Patient Treatment and Referral Form or Treatment Restriction Report. This form should be submitted to Human Resources within 24 hours of receipt.
Step 5: A Horizon Casualty Services Case Manager will be assigned to you and will serve as your personal service representative. The Case Manager will contact you to address concerns regarding your medical care. They are also responsible for coordinating your treatment with the PCP and Human Resources to ensure your appropriate medical care and prompt return to work. If you are not contacted by a case manager within 2 days of your date of injury (excluding Saturday and Sunday) please contact Human Resources at 856-256-4134.
Step 6: When you are released from the PCP you must report to Human Resources before reporting to your work site. You are required to bring medical documentation with you from the PCP releasing you to return to work.
Your Personal Case Manager In addition to a Worker's Compensation Primary Care Physician, injured employees are assigned a personal case manager. Each case manager is a Registered Nurse experienced in managing medical care and return-to-work plans for injured workers. He/she will serve as a personal service contact with Horizon Casualty Services to help facilitate your recovery. You may contact your case manager with any questions at 1-800-985-7777.
Personal Identification Card A Worker's Compensation identification card will be completed and issued to you by the Office of Human Resources. This identification card must be presented when you obtain medical services or prescription drugs in connection with a job-related injury or illness. You are the only person authorized to use the ID card. Please keep the ID card with you at all times.
