In light of the unprecedented nature of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we want to ensure all our mutual customers and their employees can get tested quickly if they suspect they’ve been exposed or infected with COVID-19 as a result of their work. If a customer or their employees need to get tested, please advise them to go to the medical provider of their choice, and Pinnacol will pay for the COVID-19 testing. They don’t need to go to one of their designated workers’ comp providers for the test.
If a customer or their employee believes there is a work-related exposure to COVID-19, we recommend they file a claim. Should the test results be positive, current state law regarding workplace exposure will apply in order for Pinnacol to pay for further
COVID-19-related treatment and benefits.
