WCB COVID-19 Guidance: Attaching Medical Bills to Form C-8.1B

Many insurance carriers are having their staff work from home during the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) health emergency. To accommodate this situation, the Board has changed its guidance on submitting medical bills and attached reports. Please use the following guidelines:

Attaching Medical Bills To Form C-8.1B

A photo or image of the medical bill is an acceptable submission in lieu of a scanned copy; however, our scanning vendor has advised that photos taken on a mobile phone produce large documents that are not amenable to scanning. They recommend downloading the Genius Scan app onto a mobile phone and using the app to scan the medical bill. Genius Scan is a free download and produces image files that are smaller in size.

Forms should be submitted by email to wcbclaimsfiling@wcb.ny.gov
