Workers' Compensation statute requires written notice to implead workers compensation fund.

Please note, the Workers’ Compensation statute (44-566a(c)(1)) requires that the commissioner of insurance must receive written notice from a party wishing to implead the workers compensation fund, setting forth the nature of the liability asserted. 

If you are filing a motion to implead the fund in OSCAR the Fund is not automatically added as a participant on the case and will not receive notice through the system. Once they have been added to the case then OSCAR will notify them through the system. Please send your written notice to the Fund at Kansas Insurance Department, Workers’ Compensation Fund, 420 SW 9th Street, Topeka KS. 66612.
