The Division of Risk Management, Bureau of Claims Administration, at the
Florida Department of Financial Services, is responsible for the investigation
and resolution/settlement of claims involving or against state agencies,
universities and injured state employees. Coverages provided by the Division include the
following types. The Division also provides management and oversight of lawsuits filed
against state agencies and universities.
The purpose of the Workers’ Compensation program is to coordinate and manage claims
relating to work injuries sustained by employees with the Justice Administrative Commission
(JAC) and the agencies we administratively serve. Some aspects of the claims process include:
reporting an injury, obtaining medical treatment, and returning the employee to work.
The ultimate goal is to return the employee to work as quickly and efficiently as possible.
All employees of the JAC and the agencies we administratively serve are covered under
Risk Management's workers’ compensation program from their first day on the job. That includes
full-time, part-time, and temporary employees.
Volunteer workers are covered for medical benefits. However, coverage is not extended
to contracted employees, independent contractors, or vendors who provide services to state agencies.
Effective January 1, 2014, all work related injuries or illnesses are to be reported to AmeriSys at 800-455-2079.
