PERSONAL INJURY & WORKERS COMPENSATION
Our office treats a lot of Workers Compensation and understands the many intricacies in these types of insurance claims. If you were recently injured at work and have questions, feel free to contact our office for more information. Many doctors do not know the beneficial effects ofacupuncture for painrelief and others do not know they can refer a patient to acupuncture therapy. That is why you need to be proactive in requesting acupuncture as your treatment choice. It is less expensive than more invasive alternatives such as surgery or epidural/cortisol injections and has no side effects unlike pharmaceutical pain medications. Adjusters will usually respond favorably and approve 12-24 visits, though unlike chiropractic and physical therapy, which are limited to 24 visits in the lifetime of the claim, there is no such limitation for acupuncture as long as the need is present and functional improvement can be verified.
We are IN-NETWORK with ALIGN NETWORKS which is a 3rd party administrator. We are also IN-NETWORK with the COVENTRY MPN. Contact our office to learn more and how you can sign a "Pre-designation form" so that in the event of a future injury at work you can choose your acupuncture provider, something we encourage all of our patients to do.
PERSONAL INJURY CLAIMS
If you were involved in a car accident you may be a candidate for a Personal Injury Claim. We have experience working with these types of cases and can help you find an attorney if you do not already have one to represent you in the case. As far as the acupuncture treatment goes, you and your attorney have to sign our physicians lien document after which we can commence treatment. This is a courtesy we extend to you the patient so you do not have to pay upfront for the treatment received and defer paying our office once the case is settled from the proceeds of the disbursements. Please contact our office for more information.
