Workers' Compensation and Insurance

Workers’ Compensation

The Omaha Public Schools are self-insured for workers’ compensation and have been approved by the NE Workers’ Compensation Court to utilize Certified Managed Care for workers’ compensation medical treatment. If an employee needs treatment for a work-related injury they should contact Ohara Managed Care before seeking non-emergency medical treatment (1-888-354-1015, option # 1). It is important that employees treat with an in-network provider. Omaha Public Schools will not pay for unauthorized medical treatment or medical expenses incurred outside the managed care plan unless your doctor agrees to the managed care plan guidelines or the treatment is an emergency or life-threatening.
