A New Approach to Worker’s Compensation
Almost all work-related injuries are orthopaedic in nature. And covering these injuries is the most important, and most expensive aspect of your company’s occupational medicine program. At MidAmerica Orthopaedics, we have a different philosophy about Worker’s Compensation. Our direct to specialist Occupational Medicine Program benefits both employers and employees by providing expert and efficient patient care while reducing compensation costs. Here’s how!
Expert Care and Streamlined Management
Our expert physicians have a prominent reputation for handling worker’s compensation cases. Their expertise combined with dedicated case management, a strong return-to-work program, in-house ancillary services, and our licensed Orthopaedic Surgery Center ensures that your employees receive the best comprehensive care. Everything is done at one location, which accelerates the process and gets employees back to restricted work programs as quickly and simply as possible.
Not only that, but we lessen your stress even more by making all the information you need to manage your claim available with just one phone call.
Orthopaedic Immediate Care
MidAmerica Orthopaedics provides direct-to specialist immediate care services as a part of our Occupational Medicine Program. What that means is your employees won’t have to wait in the emergency room or clinic only to be referred to a specialist. Our orthopaedic specialists are on-site at the time of injury. And with our Orthopaedic Ambulatory Surgery Center (link to that page), emergency cases can be handled the same day.Click here to learn more about Orthopaedic Immediate Care.
