First and Foremost: Job related injuries and illnesses require immediate attention; always remember to “seek medical care promptly”. It is critically important for the individual’s health and well-being and the employer’s physical and financial needs that a work related injury be handled in a knowledgeable, timely and cost effective manner. Our professional staff is prepared to assist individuals and employers with initial injury analysis, initial and on-going treatment, rehabilitation, drug testing and return to work services when these circumstances occur.
Communication between the employer and the provider is a key point in controlling short and long term medical costs and lost work hours. It is our primary objective to insure the employee the very best treatment available and to work with them to the end point of their medical needs including rehabilitation. We are also committed to the employer, assisting them through maximum cooperation and aggressive back to work and modified work plans that decrease out-of-pocket expenses. Critical to this process is establishing an account with UrgentMed that provides quick and easy authorization to treat by a designated and authorized representative of the company. If your company does not have a relationship with UrgentMed, the individual presenting for treatment should be accompanied by a representative from your company or must have your companies authorization form with them, including the companies physical and financial demographics and especially a contact name and phone number. This individual will be contacted immediately so that treatment can begin; however, further contact is made with your company to complete the account establishment process.
UrgentMed is a “walk-in” medical facility with X-ray and lab facilities on-site. No appointment is necessary and wait time is minimal. By seeking treatment for work related injuries with us instead of an emergency room, your company will save money, both in the cost of the treatment and lost man-hours.
If the injury establishes a “Case File and Number” and is being handled by a WC Administrator, please be assured we will work, just a diligently, with that individual to insure expedient return to or modified work status and do so as economically as possible. We are very familiar with the process, regulations and protical and can assist you in many ways. Again, communication and full disclosure on your companies part enables us to be much more effective on your and your employees behalf.
COMPANIES WITHOUT AN ESTABLISHED ACCOUNT: Please contact us today. We will be more than happy to move this process forward immediately and before you need us.
