What is Workers' Compensation Insurance?

Workers’ compensation insurance pays for your medical bills for doctor visits, emergency treatments, prescription medications, diagnostic tests, treatments, and surgeries when you’re injured at your workplace. When you qualify for workers’ compensation insurance, the insurance provider pays your medical bills and costs. However, the physician and surgeon work for the patients, i.e., for you, not the insurance company, so the treatments are no different from those under traditional insurance.

Steps to Take When You’re Hurt at Work:

  • Documentation: When you’re hurt or injured at work, you must inform your employer immediately, without delay. The injury or event should be properly documented.
  • Emergency Treatment: If your workplace injury necessitates immediate attention, you need to consult a physician or emergency room for an emergency diagnosis and treatment.
  • Specialist Consultation: After your emergency treatment, please contact a specialist related to your specific injury, such as an orthopedic surgeon for spinal injuries.

Why Contact Dr. Salari for Workers' Compensation?

The type of insurance shouldn’t affect your diagnosis, treatment plan, or prognosis. Your physician should never design the treatment plan based on your insurance. Unfortunately, inexperienced physicians don’t have the expertise necessary to ensure speedy approvals for your insurance, which can delay the diagnosis and treatment process, negatively affecting your spinal health. Dr. Salari helps with prompt diagnosis and spinal treatments, and he curates personalized treatment plans that focus on non-operative care, only resorting to surgery when necessary.
