Workers’ Compensation

Workers' CompensationWhen a person is injured at work, we at Jersey Spine Associates go out of our way to accommodate patients with work related spine injuries. Workers’ Compensation cases can be challenging and stressful for all parties involved: employers, insurers, case managers and, most of all, patients and their families. Finding the appropriate physician and specialist can be a difficult challenge.  Our goal is to ensure that our patients get the services they need to remain at work in a safe and productive manner while providing high quality care. ??Jersey Spine Associates has designated workers’ compensation staff to make the process as seamless as possible.  The team is there to assist with the necessary communication, and to serve as a liaison between our physicians and the insurance adjusters, case managers, employers, legal staffs and the patients.  Our workers’ compensation department will make authorized appointments, work to obtain timely authorization for diagnostic tests and surgeries, and are available to take your calls five days a week.

Scheduling – Every effort will be made to schedule a workers’ compensation appointment as quickly as possible.

Communication – One of the members of our workers’ compensation team will be available via phone or email during office hours.

Expertise – Our staff is extremely knowledgeable in all areas of workers’ compensation with experience in handling the administrative side of these cases.
