Workers’ compensation basics for providers

Workers’ Compensation in Colorado has its own set of processes, players, and regulatory and legal requirements, which can add to the complexity and hassle of running a medical practice. That’s why Pinnacol has developed an educational program, updated for 2021, to give providers and staff a robust overview of the knowledge needed to be successful with treating workers' compensation patients in Colorado. This program meets one of the credentialing requirements for Pinnacol’s SelectNet provider network participation standards.

We broke it down for you into 8 separate modules. Each module will take between 12 and 22 minutes to complete and includes course objectives, a self-study guide, and an assessment quiz. After completing the online quiz, you can create a certificate of completion by inserting your personal information into the certificate from the link below. Upon completion, email your customized certificate of completion for each module to to verify you have met the course requirement.The modules are browser-based and require an internet connection and audio capabilities.
