Workers' Compensation Industrial injuries and illnesses covered under Workers’ Compensation offer special challenges to the human resource/Worker’s Compensation professional. Early diagnosis and treatment are critical to returning an injured worker to his job as soon as possible. At SportsMed, we strive to reduce both medical costs and time lost from work, while providing excellent medical care to the injured worker. We contain costs by taking a conservative approach to the use of ancillary services and testing procedures. Appropriate work restrictions and light duty assignments help keep the worker active during recuperation.

· On-line Appointment Request -With our new on-line system, case managers and employers can request an appointment via our website. A Work Comp Team member will contact you to coordinate the injured worker’s appointment.
