For Caregivers who are part of the Providence St. Joseph Health System: If you experience illness, incident or injury while participating on a Volunteer Mission Trip please let your Core Leader and Sedgwick Claims Management Services know by submitting a report using the HR Portal as soon as possible. After you make the report, Sedgwick will review the information and make a determination for any potential Workers’ Compensation coverage available to you under the applicable laws. As is the case with every Workers’ Compensation claim, coverage requirements vary by state, so reporting does not necessarily guarantee coverage for the illness, injury or incident that was reported.I am answering yes below indicating that I have read, understand, and fulfill the eligibility requirements for a PSJH service trip.*
