New York: Board accepts email and fax filing for claims documents
Documents should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications for administrative review and full board review, as well as rebuttals, may be e-mailed. Forms related to no-insurance cases will also be accepted by e-mail. A separate e-mail is required for each claimant with the subject line containing the case number or the claimant's name. To ensure that e-mailed documents are scanned to the proper case folder, the board requests that the case number be placed on each page. If a case number has not been assigned, the claimant's name and the date of the accident should be placed on each page.
The Workers' Compensation Board is also allowing claims-related documents to be filed by fax. To ensure that faxed documents are scanned to the proper case folder, the board requests the case number be included on the cover page and on each page of the faxed documents. If a case number has not been assigned, the board requests the claimant's name and the date of the accident to be noted on each page. The board is not accepting forms and other documents not related to a specific workers' compensation injury by fax. Additionally, forms that require verification of the original signature should not be faxed.
