Early diagnosis and treatment of industrial injuries and illnesses are critical to returning a worker to their job as soon as possible. At SportsMED, we strive to reduce both medical costs and time away from work, all while providing excellent medical care to the injured worker. We control costs by taking a conservative approach when evaluating the need for ancillary services and testing procedures.

Our Workers’ Compensation team coordinates with the patient, referring physician, employer, case manager, and insurance adjuster to ensure timely appointments and return-to-work status. We place communication as a top priority for successful outcomes. To improve patient care for our injured workers, SportsMED has included the following services in our Huntsville clinic.
SportsMED understands the value of work-related injury prevention and is therefore proud to offer education to our patients regarding proper body mechanics, ergonomic positioning, and post-injury rehabilitation.
In order to verify in advance that the treatment for your on-the-job injury is covered, patients should provide SportsMED with the employer’s name and address. Should the employer deny the claim, the worker becomes personally responsible for the payment.
