They will give you a signed and dated copy as well as provide one copy to the claims administrator, who is responsible for handling your claim and notifying you about your eligibility for benefits.

The Occupational Medicine provider will become your primary care physician and will provide the necessary and appropriate treatment for your work-related injury. Your primary care physician will direct your care overall and refer to specialists as required. A nurse may be assigned to interact with you, your provider and employer.
