RISK MANAGEMENT TPA ANNOUNCEMENT

The CareMC system is undergoing system maintenance and is not available for online reporting. Please report first notices of loss over the phone, by email or by fax.

 

As of January 1, 2021, all workers’ compensation, general and auto liability claims as well as workplace safety will be handled by a new vendor, CorVel. PMA will continue to provide services through December 31, 2020. Employees on workers’ compensation will start receiving letters from PMA with details on this change by Monday December 21, 2020. A sample letter is posted below.

 CorVel was the successful bidder as a result of the State’s request for proposal issued earlier this year. We are working on the transition process, which involves assigning new adjusters to open claims, notifying injured workers and others the name and contact information of their new adjuster. Payments to injured workers will be made on the regular bi-weekly basis that follows the State pay schedule. Payment and coverage of medical and pharmacy bills will be continued with no interruption.  Medical providers and all other related parties will be notified of the change and provided the Corvel adjusters’ contact information as well as all billing information.  We anticipate a smooth transition.

 The State will continue to provide online safety training through Vivid in the Human Resources LMS system.

Risk Management and CorVel have conducted and will continue to schedule more remote meetings and trainings for those involved in workers’ compensation, workplace safety and liability claims.  Recorded meetings are available on SOV LINC LMS. Risk Management’s website will be updated as new information is released.

Workers' Compensation

Vermont State Government employees who are injured on the job are covered under the State’s workers’ compensation self-insurance program. Workers’ compensation claims are administered  by CorVel Corporation. The contract with CorVel is managed by  the Agency of Administration's Office of Risk Management (ORM).

Note: State of Vermont employee Managers and Supervisors, please click this link for instructions on filing a workers' compensation claim online with CorVel.

If you do not have an account with CorVel and believe that you should be a workers comp claim reporter, please have your supervisor email Breanna Hill with your title, name, phone and email - Breanna.hill@vermont.gov

Workplace Safety

Workplace injuries and illnesses produce human suffering, economic and social losses and impair the operating efficiency of state government.  ORM has entered into an agreement with CorVel to assist state agencies and departments in promoting safe work environments through training, program reviews and on-site consultations.  CorVel works with ORM to improve safety in our workplace by conducting injury prevention analysis of reported incidents. The  goal is to examine the incident and conclude what can be done to prevent a similar incident from reoccurring in the future. CorVel also monitors and evaluates statewide injury trends and exposures to determine if they are being properly addressed and makes recommendations to mitigate workplace injuries.
