What to Expect
Patients who visit the Occupational Medicine team after being injured as a result of a work-related accident should provide the following information at their first visit:
- Your employer's address and phone number
- The worker's compensation insurance carrier name, address and phone number
- The claim number
- For all worker's compensation cases, patients must also provide BMC with their health insurance card and a referral (if applicable). If the claim is later denied, BMC will then bill their health insurance plan.
- If you have been evaluated for your work injury by any provider outside of Boston Medical Center, Please bring all medical records and a copy by CD of all imaging completed.
If an employee’s work-related injury requires surgical treatment, the experts in BMC’s Department of Orthopedic Surgery are here to help provide comprehensive, exceptional orthopedic care to every patient. From accurate diagnosis, to development of a personalized treatment plan utilizing both non-operative to operative treatments, and thorough post-operative follow-up, we work hard to ensure each patient the best possible outcome.
