If you are injured or exposed to a communicable disease at work, you are covered by Worker’s Compensation. Under the law, your employer is required to cover health care costs associated with these incidents. For legal and process reasons, MSU University Health Partners (UHP) does not provide Worker’s Comp services.

 

If you are an MSU employee and have a work-related injury or illness, you should notify your supervisor immediately and follow the policy outlined here. http://www.montana.edu/srm/insurance/WorkersCompensation.html

 

If you are employed elsewhere, also notify your supervisor immediately and follow the employer’s policy for seeking care.

 

Important Note: In all cases, if the medical issue is an emergency call 911 or proceed to the nearest emergency room.
