What is Workers’ Compensation?
Whether you receive payments weekly, monthly or on a lump sum basis, workers’ compensation insurance can help make sure that you receive the professional care you need to help repair your work-related injury.
Our goal is to help you get back to work as quickly and appropriately as possible. We will help you get through the entire process – from examination and assessment to treatment and rehabilitation until your release back to work.
Benefits of Workers’ Compensation
Whatever foot-related problem you may be having, if you were injured at your job, workers’ compensation insurance can help provide a wide range of benefits. While these will be specific to your diagnosis, some common benefits include:
- Reduced pain and swelling
- Increased mobility and functionality
- The ability to return to work unimpeded by your injury
Preparing for a Workers’ Compensation Treatment
Two primary factors dictate how you should prepare for your workers’ compensation:
- Your diagnosis
- The severity of your condition
If your treatment involves rest and recuperation, very little preparation is needed. However, if your workers’ compensation treatment involves more invasive procedures such as surgery, preparation will likely be more involved.
Here are some general guidelines you should follow in order to make the process as smooth as possible:
- Please bring a copy of your insurance card, any relevant paperwork provided by your employer, and a list of known medication allergies.
- Your Advanced Foot & Ankle Surgeon doctor will prescribe a specific set of guidelines you should follow prior to your treatment. Be sure to follow them to the letters.
Workers’ Compensation Treatment Recovery
Your specific diagnosis will determine how long you will take to recover after your workers’ compensation treatment, as well as what you will experience in the process.
After your examination, our report will be sent to your insurance provider. They will review and provide authorization for any additional tests, therapy or surgery.
Your Advanced Foot & Ankle Surgeon doctor will be sure to address these issues well in advance. However, if you have any questions, feel free to ask at any time.
