Please print and review the following forms with your current staff (and new employees at time of hire)
- Initial Employee Letter and Acknowledgement Form. Employers should send the "Initial Employee Letter and Acknowledgement Form" to each employee. These documents should also be given to any new hires. The documents can be sent in any format (e.g. presentation, email, etc.). Each employee must sign the Acknowledgement form and return it to a key individual at the employer's location. This form should be placed in the employee's personnel file, acknowledging receipt of the information packet.
The following forms need to be completed and submitted to EMPLOYERS when a work-related injury occurs:
- Form 1A-1 First Report of Injury (FROI) . As soon as you have been notified of a work-related injury, please fill out this form and submit it to EMPLOYERS. This form must be completed within 10 days from notice of an accident. Fatalities must be reported within 24 hours. You must use this form to notify EMPLOYERS of every work-related injury or disease suffered by an employee, regardless of severity. Alternatively, you may also call the EMPLOYERS Injured Employee Hotline at 855-365-6010. The Injured Employee Hotline provides immediate access to registered nurses using national guidelines to provide initial medical guidance over the phone and immediate reporting of injuries with less paperwork.
- Form 106 Medical Waiver and Consent . This is a medical authorization form that enables you or the Division of Workers’ Compensation to obtain medical information relative to your employee’s work-related injury/illness.

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.
