TIP: All details of the WCB claim such as DOI, side right or left must match WCB records or the claim will be refused which could ultimate result in zero payment.
Next you will be required to complete Employer Details as gathered by the patient.
TIP: Often patients can be reluctant to provide full details of their employment, to avoid workplace conflict. Try to get at least Company name and phone number and google the rest if needed.
Completing the Worker information
TIP: The patient may be unresponsive or unable to provide these details, be sure to gather at least a contact phone number or email so that we may gather details at a later date. It is best to put "unknown" as apposed to leaving it blank, which may cause the claim to reject.
Now that we have the little details out the way you can proceed to form details that are needed.
First to Treat examples: Medic, First responder, ER physcian
TIP: Do not leave any box empty or it is often considered incomplete. Ie. Prior/other problems - put "NONE" if the patient does not have any pre-existing conditions.
Your Form is almost done - continue on to Injury Details:

ICD 9 code - you can select up to 3

Save and you are done!
