Filing a Chesapeake Employers Workers Comp Claim

What changes actually exist when filing a claim with Chesapeake remain to be seen.  In all likelihood, the distinctions will be small.  Injured Workers’ Insurance Fund does move from being a state run agency to being a private, albeit not for profit insurance company.  This has significance for their business, but probably not much significance for the injured worker.  In theory, some might believe it will be tougher to get medical treatment approved.  Again, it remains to be seen.  Chesapeake will still function as the workers’ comp insurer of last resort.
