Am I covered by Worker's Compensation?
If you are not paid by the agency where you are doing your field placement, you are covered by MSU Denver for on-the-job injuries. You must inform the field coordinator, your seminar instructor, and MSU Denver's Office of Human Resources within 24 hours of the injury and you must use an approved medical provider for any services or you will not be covered. Your seminar instructor will have you sign a form acknowledging receipt of information about this policy. For more information about the policy and for a list of approved providers, go to the HR website.
