Workers' Compensation (WC)


The insurance coverage for injuries or illnesses that arise out of or in the course of employment without regard to negligence or fault. The employer purchases this coverage. Services should be billed to the WC insurance carrier first and then billed to BCBSKS attaching the WC carrier's payment decision. The Kansas provision states that the patient may seek care from the provider of their choice for the first $500 of incurred charges.
