Effective Claims Management - Returning to Work
Returning injured employees to work as soon as possible is one of our main priorities. A quicker return to work avoids costly disability payments and promotes better recovery from injuries. Our physicians and staff provide clearly communicated work restrictions that allow you to place employees in modified duty programs. Meanwhile, we work at restoring their full-duty capabilities as quickly as possible through expert treatment plans.
With rising healthcare costs, effective reporting is more critical than ever. Since the passing of California Senate Bill 899, employers look to their company's healthcare provider as an integral part of the team of professionals who help get the injured worker back on the job. At Mercy, you'll receive all injury reports in a timely manner so you will know what staffing changes need to take place to allow you to maintain regulatory compliance. While the state mandates follow-up reports every 45 days, our standards are much higher. We mail updates to both you and the insurance carrier following every visit.
