Treating Crime Victims

Simplified billing for workers' compensation providers who treat crime victims

Beginning July 1, 2009, health-care providers who treat both injured workers and crime victims can bill L&I using the same number: your workers' compensation provider number.

The new billing is based on simplified provider registration, an improvement designed to reduce providers' administrative costs when doing business with L&I.

New providers after July 1, 2009 will be able to sign up to treat both injured workers and crime victims at the same time using one registration form.
