Immediately after the accident, report it to your foreman or supervisor who will then file a 24 Hour Report and ADR C2 with E.E.S.I.S.P. You will then receive a letter from from E.E.S.I.S.P. giving you a case number. If you do not receive this letter, contact your employer to make sure the accident report was filed.
Please note, medical bills or payment for lost time will be delayed or not paid without an accident report.
Contact MagnaComp at (888) 336-8773 and they will recommend doctors in your area. Please note, you must use a doctor in the MagnaComp network or payment of bills will be denied.
If you require immediate or emergency treatment following an injury, you may go to any hospital or walk-in clinic. If additional treatment is required, you must contact MagnaComp for a referral to an in-network provider.
If all forms have been filed correctly, you should receive your first check approximately 12-14 days after your first full day out of work.
The statutory portion of the benefit is two-thirds of your average weekly wage for the year prior to the date of your accident with a maximum of two-thirds of the New York State average weekly wage. Under most circumstances, you will also be entitled to a collectively bargained supplementary benefit up to a maximum of $155 per week. The supplementary benefit is subject to different criteria than the statutory benefit.
No, payment is only made by check.
The inactive letter tells you that you are currently not losing time from work and that you are not under treatment for that claim. The claim has been closed, but if further treatment is needed, contact E.E.S.I.S.P. for information on how to reopen the claim.
To file a disability claim, for a non-work-related illness or injury, contact E.E.S.I.S.P. at (718) 591-2800 for a telephone interview. You must file a DB-450 form.
