DI 52120: State Specific Workers' Compensation (WC) Procedures
A. Policy on Colorado Workers’ Compensation (WC)
Colorado WC payments are made under a reverse offset plan.
Code the claim “RJ”. Do not impose offset in Colorado WC cases.
NOTE: Per instructions in DI 52105.001E.1. "Verifying the existence of reverse offset plans," an allegation of receipt of Colorado WC does not require verification. If the amount of WC is unknown, but must be coded to propagate the MCS screen path, input the WC State maximum rate as of the date of injury and include a remark in MCS to explain the WC rate coded.
