Supersedes Subject No. 047, Policy Statement on Submission of Forms by FAX Machine; amends Subject No. 046-144 only with respect to the fax number to be used for filing applications for review and rebuttals.
Effective February 25, 2009, the Workers' Compensation Board allowed claims-related documents to be filed with the Board by fax. The following toll-free number is to be used:
Applications for Administrative Review and Full Board Review, as well as rebuttals, (Forms RB-89, RB-89.1, RB-89.2 and RB-89.3) should be faxed to this new fax number, which replaces the current fax number dedicated for such submissions, which will be discontinued on April 1, 2009.
Faxes will be accepted 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The received date for all documents faxed to the above number will be recorded by a stamp on the document that indicates the complete date and time the fax was received; e.g., "Received by WCB Fax on 2/23/2009 9:41:16 AM".
Forms That Should Not Be Faxed:
When faxing a document to the Board, please be sure that it is complete and has full case identification information. Fax cover sheets are not required.
Thank you for your cooperation.
