WORKERS COMPENSATION

Knowledge of Workers’ Compensation

Bone & Joint Specialists’ team have extensive, up-to-date knowledge and training of workers’ compensation laws, which is a major factor to manage health care costs in order to benefit employers and patients. Our on-site workers’ compensation team is dedicated and ready to assist in the management and facilitation of any injured worker case.

Collaboration of Work-related injury

Our physicians and staff work to help alleviate the expense of an on-site injury, including providing companies with accurate, timely diagnoses and treatment plans that enable employees to get back to work as quickly as possible. Nurse case managers and adjusters that represent these patients can count on the staff at Bone & Joint Specialists to share the knowledge promptly in a spirit of cooperation to provide top-quality care for our patients while keeping down potentially high costs of work-related injuries.

Injured Worker

We are experts in work-related injuries and recognize that the key to cost management is getting the diagnosis right the first time. Our expertise includes careful evaluation of injury causation, turn-around of Work Status reports within 24 hours of office visit and providing the latest in cost effective treatment options.
