The Return to Work process starts with the first visit to the health care provider.
RTW Process for Health Care Providers
As the health care provider, attend to the injured worker and complete the First Medical Report (includes functional abilities form).
Provide the worker with a copy of the functional abilities form. This helps their employer assess whether or not there are suitable modified work options.
Provide the WSCC with a copy of both the First Medical Report and the Functional Abilities form.
Provide recommended diagnostic, treatment, and rehabilitation programs for the worker’s recovery.
