Workers Compensation FAQs

The Kansas Department of Labor Workers Compensation Division is responsible for the administration of the Kansas Workers Compensation laws and rules. The division focuses on ensuring employees injured at work, employers, health care providers and insurance carriers receive timely, impartial and fair claim resolution.
 

Who should I bill?

Employers must provide for payment of medical claims in one of three ways:

  1. Workers Compensation insurance: obtained from a licensed insurance carrier. The employer pays the premiums and the insurance company pays the claims
  2. Self-insurance: an individual employer must demonstrate to the state the financial ability to pay any claims that might arise
  3. Group-funded pool: a group of employers meeting certain statutory requirements may form a self-insurance program to jointly insure their ability to pay claims.

This program is administered by the Kansas Department of Insurance. All medical bills shall be submitted to the appropriate insurance for that employer.
