Each Incident, Claim and Worker must be assigned to a policy.
When a user adds anew incident, claim or worker to the Injury Master System the user must select which cost centre the incident/claim/worker is assigned, each cost centre in turn is assigned to a policy meaning the cost centre selection will define the policy.

Companies must have workers compensation insurance policies covering their employees. These are state and company specific policies meaning companies will likely have multiple policies (organisations may have multiple policies per state if they have multiple companies within their organisation). 

It is important that the correct that policy information is in the Injury Master system not only for reporting purposes (to calculate premiums etc.) but also to ensure that claims costs are assigned to the correct policy. 

The policy information can be found under Settings on the Navigation Bar. If you have access to this area you can edit, view and add policy information in this area. 

1. Tabs - There are two tabs: Current and Archived.

When a new Policy is created it will show in the Current tab. When a Policy is no longer active it should be moved into the Archived tab. 

The number of Current and Archived Policies show in the brackets next to the relevant tab.


2. Policy Details
The policy details are displayed in alphabetical order by Scheme Name. The details of the policy are shown below detailing the insurer, policy number, renewal date and name (if a name is entered).

3. Edit & Archive
