First Report of Injury.
- IC85 Employers Supplementary of Injury (FROI). This is a supplemental form that you need to complete and submit to the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission (along with form IC45) when workers’ compensation benefits begin or are stopped, there is a change in your employee’s status and/or final compensation is made.
The Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission also accepts the International Association of Industrial Accident Boards and Commissions (IAIABC) first report of injury form: IA-2 IAIABC W.C. Subsequent Report.

This form provides your employees with basic information about our Pharmacy Benefit Program, including such things as the phone number to call to locate a First Fill participating pharmacy. When your employee becomes injured, please print and complete this form and provide it to your injured employee.
