Workers’ Compensation Information
If you believe COVID-19 was contracted at work, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits, which could include medical and indemnity (wage replacement) benefits. A claims analyst will determine if the illness qualifies for coverage. If the claim is denied, there is a process to object and request a hearing.
Instructions on how to file for workers’ compensation are available through the Wyoming Department of Workforce Services. The information on the Wyoming Report of Injury form will be required. If possible, the worker and employer should work together when completing the form. Please also review the Frequently Asked Questions for Worker’s Compensation during COVID-19.
