California workers' compensation

In the state of California, the university's workers' compensation program is self-insured and its claims are managed by a third party administrator, Sedgwick, CMS.

Workers' compensation managers at each location work in partnership with their designated Sedgwick claims office to coordinate the exchange of information required for effective claim and risk management programs. The common goals for both entities are effective medical treatment and benefits administration in accordance with workers' compensation laws and regulations. They are also responsible for overseeing their internal processes including:

  • Injury reporting
  • Initial treatment with designated medical provider
  • Return-to-work programs
  • Program trend analyses

If you have questions regarding a workers' compensation claim or issue, you should contact your local workers' compensation manager or department.
