On August 1, 2013, Nextep will transition its workers’ compensation relationship to Zurich.
Boasting an A+ workers’ compensation carrier rating, Zurich celebrated its 100th anniversary of insuring American businesses in 2012.
Little action is needed on your part. Nextep clients can expect to receive the same great coverage and service as before. All plan details, deductibles, and competitive pricing will remain the same.
In the coming weeks, Nextep’s Risk Department will mail revised workers’ compensation insurance certificates to active certificate holders. We advise that you take a moment to review the workers’ compensation portion of your labor poster and update the Insurer information to reflect Zurich.
Nextep’s injury reporting protocol will remain the same. As a reminder, injury procedures are listed below. For additional details, please refer to Nextep’s Workplace Injury Guide.
WHAT TO DO WHEN A WORKPLACE INJURY OCCURS
First, take care of the employee. Next: Contact Nextep at firstname.lastname@example.org or 888-811-5150 at any time, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Evaluation and Treatment
For medical treatment, send the employee to the nearest Concentra Location. Emergency rooms should only be used for life-threatening situations. A post-injury drug screen will be performed by the occupational clinic for all on-the-job injuries.
Within 24 hours of the injury, notify Nextep using the First Report of Injury form. The injured employee should present the medical provider with the form titled RISK – Drug Screen and Injury Care Authorization.
Post Evaluation and Treatment
When the injured worker returns to work, notify Nextep immediately so that we can communicate with the workers’ compensation case manager and provide you guidance on re-entering the employee into the workplace.
For more information, email Nextep’s Risk Department or call 888-811-5150.
