Workers' Compensation

USF provides coverage through the Travelers Indemnity Company for employees who experience work-related injuries and illnesses. Workers compensation is intended to provide medical care and wages for lost time resulting from work-related injuries and illnesses caused by an employee’s work.

Procedures

In the event of a life-threatening or limb-threatening medical emergency, call (415) 422-2911 if working on campus or 911 if working off campus. Additionally and immediately after a work work-related injury or illness occurs, you must inform:

Failure to report an injury or illness in a timely way may jeopardize or delay your rights to certain benefits.

If you are injured, you are eligible to be seen immediately for medical care. Call and make an appointment at one of the two treatment rooms below. Both specialize in Occupational Medicine.

Medical Provider Network

You may be seen by a doctor in the Traveler’s Medical Provider Network (MPN). Find instructions on finding a provider in the network HERE. A provider in the Medical Provider Network (MPN) must be used for treatment unless you have predesignated a personal physician for treatment of work-related injuries or illnesses. To predesignate a provider for such instances, you must have the provider sign the predesignation form and submit it to Human Resources at leaves@usfca.edu before reporting an incident. The predesignation form starts on page four of Travelers’ Workers’ Compensation Benefits document, which can be accessed here.
