What Do Tumwater Workers Need to Know About Workers’ Compensation?
Injured workers who are covered by L&I insurance are entitled to certain benefits including being treated by an attending workers’ comp physician.
If you are not able to work because you were hurt or became sick while working, you may also be eligible for wage replacement benefits through the L&I workers’ comp program.
L&I workers’ comp doctors help workers in the state of Washington make a timely return to gainful employment.
How is a workers’ comp doctor different?
Doctors at Westcare Clinic are ‘attending physicians’, which means that they are preferred and listed in the L&I insurance network. If a worker in Washington is injured or ill as a result of working conditions, they can submit a claim, and, once it’s accepted, the treatment they receive from our workers’ comp physicians will be covered.
How do workers’ comp doctors help Washington workers avoid disability?
Westcare Clinic is committed to delivering the best care for the full duration of your illness or injury. As a partner with the Department of Labor & Industries, we ensure that our patients return to work quickly and avoid disability.
Seeking care from a non-L&I provider means you may get inadequate or delayed medical treatment. Our team keeps the process moving forward by assisting you with filing your workers’ comp claim and overseeing the efficient management of your care. Our clinic follows best practices and takes advantage of the many resources that the state offers.
Workers Compensation Physicians for Tumwater Employers
Washington state employers who have workers’ comp insurance through L&I will need to fill out the employer section of the accident report form and ensure their employee seeks medical attention right away.
If they are unable to perform the regular duties of their job as a result of the injury or illness, L&I recommends temporarily assigning your employee to a lighter-duty job if applicable.
Once the claim is approved, these benefits help keep employers’ claim costs low.
