Chesapeake Employers Insurance Company (CEIWC) is a major workers compensation insurance provider for employers located in and doing business in the state of Maryland.  They provide insurance coverage to employers in the event an employee is injured.  This means that rather than the employer being responsible to pay the benefits CEIWC will step in their shoes and make the payments which they are deemed responsible to pay.

Their contact information is:            8722 Loch Raven Boulevard
                                                              Towson, Maryland 21286
                                                              410-494-2000

The pre-certification department should be used by medical providers when they are seeking pre-authorization of medical treatment.  When the adjuster is difficult to get a hold of or is not responding to authorization a Maryland workers compensation attorney can help.  It is also a good idea to send requests to precert. 

PreCert department contact:   410-494-2079 OR  precert1@ceiwc.com

CEIWC is made up of the workers comp adjusters, the workers comp attorneys, nurse case managers, pre-cert nursing and medical staff, administration staffing, and others.  With other Maryland insurance companies any number of these rolls can be contracted out to different companies.  For instance, it is not unusual for one particular insurance company to have a third party administrator who provides the adjusters, a separate law firm or company providing attorneys, a vocational company provide nurse case management and vocational rehabilitation services.

Chesapeake Employers Insurance Company was formally know as Injured Workers Insurance Fund (IWIF). Prior to 2014 IWIF was considered the last resort for employers to obtain workers compensation insurance.  It was a state agency operated similar to Maryland Auto Insurance Fund.  The company is now operated privately.
