Crime Victims' Compensation Program
Established by the 1973 crime victims compensation act. Washington's Crime Victims' Compensation Program is administered through the Washington State Department of Labor and Industries. State law requires the Crime Victims' Compensation program to pay the costs of sexual-assault examinations when they are performed to gather evidence for possible prosecution. It also pays for health & mental health services when the victim has exhausted other insurance resources, both public and private, before using the benefits of the Crime Victim' Compensation Program. Contact your insurance provider and the Victims Program early, to clarify information and obtain information for the victim and health care provider as to the benefits that can be provided.
