Worker's Comp

Introduction

At the Salt Lake Orthopaedic Clinic, we strive to reduce both medical costs and time lost from work, while providing excellent medical care to the injured worker. We contain costs by taking a conservative approach to the use of ancillary services and testing procedures. Appropriate work restrictions and light duty assignments help keep the worker active during recuperation.

Appropriate documentation

Keeping the employer and insurance carrier apprised of the patient's treatment plan, progress and status is a priority at the Salt Lake Orthopaedic Clinic. Our physicians are well versed in the intricacies of workers' compensation report writing so that written communications meet all accepted legal standards.

Preventative measures

At the Salt Lake Orthopaedic Clinic, we understand the value of work-injury prevention and provide education to our patients in proper body mechanics, ergonomic positioning, and post-injury rehabilitation.

Patients with on-the-job injuries should provide us with employer€™s name and address and we will verify in advance that your treatment for an on-the-job injury is covered. Should the employer deny the claim, the worker becomes personally responsible for payment.
