Workers' Compensation Insurance

The ​Kentucky Workers Compensation Program (excludes Transportation Cabinet employees) provides medical and disability benefits to employees who may experience a work-related injury or illness. A managed care program is used to provide covered medical benefits.

We encourage our covered employers to submit a First Report of Injury (below) via electronic submission. Please do not forget to print the IA-1prior to submitting. You will need to maintain a copy for your records.

If you do not reach us by phone, please do not hesitate to email us your questions:
