How Louisiana Pain Efficiently Navigates Worker’s Compensation
Workers’ compensation is a form of insurance that provides wage replacement and medical benefits to employees injured on the job, in exchange for the employee’s right to sue the employer. For someone suffering from a work injury, this can be confusing, frustrating and time-consuming, and when it comes to proper care and treatment, time is of the essence to prevent the injury from getting worse and getting the patient healed. Fortunately, Louisiana Pain has an efficient system that gets patients on track right away– often within just a day. Our medical billing and insurance specialist handles all referrals – from physicians, lawyers, and insurance adjusters– and makes the process as seamless as possible.
From the time that paients are sent to us, our billing and insurance specialist is the patient’s one contact. This is crucial, as lines can become crossed when dealing with too many people. We’ve all had the experience of “too many cooks in the kitchen” and the concept is extra frazzling when dealing with health care or legal issues. But by serving as an efficient, well-organized middleman, we alleviate patients’ stress and ensures that those suffering from work-related injuries only need to focus on healing, instead of cutting through pesky, bureaucratic red tape.
We contact the Workman’s Comp adjuster for that patient and get authorization for treatment within 24 to 48 hours for a new patient appointment.
Another reason workers’ comp cases work so well is because Louisiana Pain has a long-standing relationship with many insurance adjusters. Many of them give the clinic a quick response because they are familiar with the practice and how well we handle patients while under our care,. We take pride in our personalized careand relationships with patients, and it’s obvious that the bedside manner pays off. Patients are offered all the same courtesies as regular patients. We do our best to accommodate all that the insurance companies requests. We ensure that all paperwork is in place and well- documented.
Many of our patients call during their treatment, expressing how grateful they are that their pain has been managed. Those phone calls are always so enjoyable. The patients become more comfortable when they see that someone genuinely cares and is working to make sure they are able to live a better healthy and happy life.
