Medical Provider Brochure

Injury management requires following best practices for maximum effectiveness.  One piece of this puzzle is the Medical Care Coordination and the Medical Provider Brochure.  


The Medical Provider Brochure should be given when you make a personal visit to your company's medical providers.  Here are some additional tips:


  1. Customize and distribute a brochure to medical providers explaining your company's transitional duty program and the benefits to both your employees and company.
  2. Have treating physicians visit your operation to document physical requirements for performing jobs.
  3. Encourage doctors to suggest transitional duty tasks based on those physical requirements and potential physical limitations.
  4. Monitor medical bills to determine if those medical bills are reduced to the state-mandated fee schedule by your claims management staff.
  5. Determine available claims adjuster services needed to coordinate medical care and reduce medical costs, and use those most useful for your company.
