Claim records disclosure

Oregon Revised Statute 192.502(20) provides that injured-worker claim records are exempt from public disclosure with certain exceptions. Oregon Administrative Rule 436-060-0009 describes the rules for disclosure and release of injured-worker claim records; eligibility for obtaining access; and the associated forms, fees, and appropriate processes. The Operations Section is responsible for maintaining and releasing this information. The Central Services Unit of the Operations Section will evaluate requests. If the request is for claim history or claim file information, the Central Services Unit will review the request and release the information according to Oregon statutes and rules. In the case of appropriate requests for bulk claims-history information for research or other purposes, the Central Services Unit will coordinate the release with the Information Management Division.
