Workers' Compensation

Woodland School District is self-insured through Southwest Washington Workers’ Compensation Trust (SWWCT). The Trust is fully funded by its member participants. Educational Service District 112 is contracted to perform claims adjustment services for the Trust.

To report a Workers Compensation Claim, please call the ESD 112 Workers’ Compensation Department at 800.749.5861 or 360.750.7504.

In Case of Accident or Work-Related Disease:

Call ESD 112’s Workers’ Compensation Claims Department

2500 NE 65th Avenue
Vancouver, WA 98661
Phone: 360-750-7504 or toll free 1-800-749-5861 | Fax: 360-750-9836

  • Get correct Workers’ Compensation claim number from ESD 112 before you seek medical treatment, if possible. (Note: Most physicians and hospitals give you State L& I Claim numbers. This is not the correct number, as the District is Self-Insured. You must get the claim number from ESD 112’s Workers Comp Dept.) You can get this number from ESD112 over the phone.
  • Be sure the physician you see accepts Workers’ Compensation cases. They must be in the L&I medical provider network:
  • You will need to complete an Employee Accident Form.
  • Check with ESD112 to find out what is an allowable expense under Workers’ Comp. They will provide all the information regarding the Self-Insured Employers Workers’ Compensation. ESD 112 Worker’s Comp will handle the claim.
