Sedgwick Claims Management Services is the third party administrator for the LSU AgCenter's Worker's Compensation benefit. They will handle payment of all medical bills once a claim has been filed with them.

Medical providers can send bills directly to Sedgwick via mail or fax:

Overview

  • Provides for payment of medical expenses recommended by attending physicians.
  • Provides for compensation payments when employees are absent from work for more than one week. (Once an employee is off for six weeks, that employee is then entitled to be paid for the first week off.)
  • When employees use sick and/or annual leave (during which time they are paid l00% of their salary), they endorse and return the Worker's Compensation check, and two-thirds of their leave is recredited.
  • Payments are made at the rate of 2/3 of the individual's average weekly wage to a maximum of 75% of the statewide average weekly wage.
