The Claim Process

HEMIC’s Claim Specialists are dedicated experts, looking out for both injured workers and their employers. We take pride in ensuring that all claims are resolved as accurately and timely as possible.

If an Injury Occurs

Within 24 hours of a workplace injury, employers should submit a WC-1 Employers Report of Industrial Injury directly to HEMIC. If you receive the WC-1 from an employer, please forward it to us right away. The sooner we know an injury has occurred, the faster we can get involved and help.

The State of Hawai`i requires employers to report workplace injuries within 7 days of notice of the injury, or it becomes a misdemeanor punishable by fine up to $5,000.

Return-to-Work Programs

Return-to-work programs benefit everyone, they help injured workers return to productive capacity and they help employers contain the overall costs of the claim. If your clients don’t have a return-to-work program, we can help them set one up. If they have a return-to-work program, they may qualify for a Safety Credit.
