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 treatment of work-related injuries or illnesses. Thus, 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, report the injury using 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.

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.
