What is Workers’ Compensation?
Workers’ Compensation is a type of coverage that is maintained by your employer. You may see a small deduction in some of your paychecks that are combined with your employer’s portion. Workers‘ Compensation is found in all states, and it covers employees who suffer on-the-job injuries, illnesses, and other medical events that resulted from the occupation.
What Can Be Treated Under Workers’ Compensation?
You may be eligible for Workers’ Compensation benefits if you:
- Are employed by a company that is required to have Workers’ Compensation, and
- Were injured as a result of a work-related event which may or may not have occurred at the normal job site
What Are the Benefits of Workers’ Compensation Treatment?
Workers’ Compensation protects employers and employees from expenses related to accidents that occur on the job. In most cases, the employee’s medical costs are covered. There may also be some protections to ensure that the employee does not lose employment as a result of the injury.
How Does Workers’ Compensation Treatment Help with My Condition?
When you suffer an injury or illness while at work, you should immediately notify your supervisor or human resources department. A summary of the incident needs to be completed before Workers’ Compensation benefits can be provided. If you are unsure how Workers’ Compensation works at your job, speak with a supervisor or benefits manager for details.
What Should I Expect from My Workers’ Compensation Treatment?
SOAR’s comprehensive Workers‘ Compensation Program ensures that the injured patient receives the appropriate medical care utilizing a holistic approach to get the patient back to work. This program includes:
- Initial evaluation and treatment
- Independent medical evaluations
- Maximum Medical Improvement (MMI) evaluation
Does Insurance Cover the Cost of Workers’ Compensation Treatment?
Workers’ Compensation is a type of insurance, so your medical insurance may be unnecessary. We strive to keep all expenses covered under the Workers’ Compensation claim, but you may have out-of-pocket expenses. Speak with our patient coordinator to learn about payment plans, discounted rates and other options.
