Simplified billing for workers' compensation providers who treat crime victims
Health care providers who treat both injured workers and crime victims can bill L&I using the same number: your workers' compensation provider number.
Providers will sign up to treat both injured workers and crime victims at the same time using one registration form. Providers have the option to not treat crime victims. Reimbursement rates for crime victims differ from injured workers.
Your provider relationship with L&I determines billing (and possible registration)*
