Claims FAQ

Claims can be filed either by logging in to our Member Portal, emailing claimsfirstreport@alacompins.com or faxing 334.215.8480.

A claim should be filed within 24 hours of the Employer receiving notice of an on-the-job injury. The notice requirement is met if anyone in a position above the injured worker (i.e. supervisor, manager, safety director, etc.) is made aware of or has firsthand knowledge of an on-the-job injury.

In Alabama, the Employer has the option to direct the initial care. Each Employer should maintain and follow a predetermined medical protocol for referring an injured worker to a physician. Only Employers or Carrier-approved physicians should be utilized. The injured worker should never be referred to their personal physician for a workers’ compensation claim.

Lost wages or indemnity benefits are only paid when an injured worker is taken off work or placed on unaccommodated restricted duty by an authorized treating physician. 

Temporary Total Disability (TTD) is paid when the injured worker is taken completely out of work and is based on 66 2/3 of the injured workers Average Weekly Wage (AWW) for the immediate 52 weeks preceding the date of injury. 

Temporary Partial Disability (TPD) is paid when the injured worker is on restricted duty that is being accommodated by the employer that results in loss of wages.

In Alabama, there is a three (3) day waiting period on indemnity benefits. The first three days the injured worker misses as a result of an on-the-job injury are not paid UNLESS the period of disability extends past twenty-one (21) days. After twenty-one days, the three-day waiting period is then due and payable.

If the injured worker is on restricted or light duty, the Employer has the option to bring them back to work in a restricted capacity. AlaCOMP believes in aggressive light duty programs, and we have partnered with several vendors who can locate off-site light duty assignments if an Employer is unable to provide a light duty job. This option should be discussed with the adjuster handling the claim.

Claims can only be denied by the carrier. There are several reasons that a claim may not be compensable under the workers’ compensation policy. If there is a question regarding compensability, this should be discussed with the adjuster on a case-by-case basis.
