Employee injuries and subsequent workers’ compensation claims can trigger a host of concerns: How did this accident happen? How do we get care for this worker? How much will this cost? And while these are only a few of the concerns raised when an accident happens, they’re likely the most serious ones.
In the immediate hours after an accident, however, your greatest concern is to get appropriate medical care for the injured worker. Delays in care – or in appropriate care – can increase the severity of the injury, increase the cost of the claim, and keep your worker out of work for longer. Studies have shown that employers who have access to comprehensive occupational medicine resources find their employers back to work faster, according to the National Council on Compensation Insurance (NCCI).
Comprehensive pre-planning for post-accident care should be at the top of your list of priorities when an injury happens, but that kind of planning can take time. Hanover has partnered with TalisPoint®, to provide a medical provider search tool, to help you access the information you need on occupational medicine providers in your area at the touch of a key. Appropriate in-network care can help reduce claim costs and get your worker back to work quickly.
