Workers’ Compensation

Workers’ compensation? We’ve got this covered.

From payrolling your cast and crew members, to handling special reporting situations for things like water, stunts, hazardous conditions, and foreign travel, we take charge so you can focus on your production.

We carry workers’ compensation insurance and are compliant with all state requirements. Should an injury occur to any employee we payroll, we will handle all necessary paperwork and manage the claim to completion.

For additional workers’ compensation resources, including how to locate a medical provider network (MPN), visit our Resource Library page.

To report a claim.

When your production starts, before an employee is injured, download our customized claim reporting mobile app, STARS Intake, from the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store. The app will allow you to submit claim information should you have an injured employee.

Life-threatening emergency situations

Call 9-1-1. Go to the nearest emergency room or medical facility equipped to handle emergencies. A medical emergency is generally defined as a sudden and unforeseen injury or illness of such a nature that failure to get immediate medical care could be life threatening or include severe bleeding from any site, loss of consciousness, seizures or severe or multiple injuries.

Non-emergency situations

Cast & Crew utilizes a medical provider network (MPN) for the treatment of work-related injuries and illnesses. As such, treatment is rendered by an employer-selected physician (unless the employee properly pre-designated a personal physician in writing prior to the injury). If medical attention is required, injuries should be reported through the STARS Intake mobile app. To obtain a physician referral, contact Cast & Crew’s Workers’ Compensation department via email at or by phone at 818.738.9351

Information about Cast & Crew’s MPN, including a pre-designation form, can be found here. You can also find a pre-designation (California only) form here.

Reporting and billing situations

Immediately report the injury to Cast & Crew regardless of whether the accident occurred during normal working hours, after hours or over the weekend. To report the injury, please use our claim reporting mobile app, STARS Intake.

Before being treated, the employee must mention that the injury is work related and that Cast & Crew’s insurance carrier is Sedgwick. The medical facility will contact Sedgwick for a policy number and an address to submit its bill and report. Providing a policy number is not an admission of liability.
