Workers' Compensation Claim Form (DWC-1) & Notice of Potential Eligibility, Rev. 6/10

NOTE:

Claim Form/NOPE (Effective October 8, 2010 --- Note: will not be updated to reflect SB 863 changes until the state amends the current regulations)

The form that injured workers, their dependents or agents use to file a claim for workers' compensation benefits in California (LC 5401, CCR 10139.). This form was revised by the state in June 2010 to include changes on the Notice of Potential Eligibility related to Medical Provider Notices as well as other technical revisions and updates to the Spanish translation. California law requires employers to provide employees with the DWC-1 form and notice of Potential Eligibility within one working day of receiving notice or knowledge of a work injury or illness (beyond first-aid). The 5-part form is printed in English and Spanish, with the state-mandated Notice of Potential Eligibility printed as a cover sheet attached to four copies of the claim form printed on NCR paper: one as the employee's temporary receipt when they first file the claim; and one each for the employer and the claims administrator, and one as the employee's final copy that should be signed and dated by the employer after completing their portion of the form. (5-part claim forms, effective October 8, 2010.)

Pain Management and the Use of Opioids in the Treatment of Back Conditions in the California Workers' Compensation System (Published June 2008)

A study based on prescription drug data from more than 166,000 California work injury claims for back conditions with no spinal cord involvement which finds that higher levels of opioid use are associated with higher claim costs, as well as a higher prevalence of other adverse outcomes such as increased likelihood of lost time from work, delayed recovery and increased attorney involvement. The 16-page analysis adds to scientific literature that suggests that at higher levels of use, opioids can have an adverse impact on both activity levels and on self-efficacy, and that prolonged administration of pain medication may impede, rather than facilitate, injured workers' recovery from occupational back injuries.
