Search for Carrier's Designated Contact Information

Each Carrier is required to designate at least one contact for the variance, pre-authorization, and optional prior approval (if they participate) processes.

Select the type of contact information you need and then enter either the name of the insurance carrier or the insurance carrier's W number to search for contact information. Searching by W Number will give the most accurate search results.

If you don't know who the carrier is, you can use Does Employer Have Coverage to find the name of the employer's carrier. If several carriers are listed for that employer, choose the one who provided coverage during the injured worker's date of accident. Occasionally, the system will identify the carrier for the date of accident as "SELFINS". If this occurs, please call (518) 402-0247 to identify the actual carrier.

Once you know the carrier's name, then use either the List of Carrier W Numbers adobe pdf or
List of Self-Insured Employer W Numbers adobe pdf to identify the W number to use for your search.
