Don’t Wait: 5 Key Reasons to Report Workplace Injury Promptly
Once a claim has been submitted, employers receive the support of an experienced claims professional to help them navigate the workers’ compensation benefits process and answer questions. They also have access to claims management resources designed to ensure injured employees receive the proper medical care and attention they need to recover and return to work safely and as soon as possible. These include:
24/7 Nurse Triage: If a policyholder is unsure if medical treatment is required for an injury, or what type is needed, they can contact the Nationwide Nurse Triage Hotline. Registered nurses can help to determine an effective course of action and assist in coordinating initial care by an appropriate authorized provider.
First Fill: This program allows injured workers to fill prescriptions written by an authorized workers’ compensation physician for medications related to their injury before workers’ compensation is established and with no out-of-pocket expenses on their first prescription.
Successful Return-to-Work: Policyholders have access to a sample interactive program that can serve as the framework for building a return-to-work program. It includes steps to take both before and after an injury occurs to help facilitate positive outcomes for employees and the business.
Leverage nurse triage services to help control and minimize workplace injuries and their related costs.
