Your claim begins when you submit a completed C-4 form, or Employee’s Claim for Compensation/Report of Initial Treatment. You must fill out a portion of this form and your physician fills out the rest and sends it to your employer and the insurance provider. The physician must sign and date the form within 90 days of your injury.
