ALL employees on UAMS payroll are entitled to apply for Workers’ Compensation benefits. If you have an on-the-job injury, you may be eligible for benefits, including medical care and income replacement.
Employees with work related injuries, who NEED medical treatment, must call the Company Nurse Injury Hotline @ 1-855-339-1893 to begin the claim process. The injury hotline is accessible to employees, 24 hours / 7 days a week. This accessibility aids our employees in getting timely and appropriate medical treatment.
