What does Workers’ Compensation insurance cover?

Ophthalmologists traditionally have better than average workers’ compensation claims experience, but it doesn’t take many claims to significantly affect your practice’s bottom line.

What claims are covered?
The policy provides comprehensive coverage to pay the medical and disability expenses of your injured employees. This coverage also protects you against lawsuits resulting from your employees’ injuries.

What loss prevention services are offered?
The carriers’ loss control specialists review ophthalmic practice loss trends for program participants and propose corrective action.

How do the carriers root out insurance fraud?
The carriers have developed programs to deter, detect and prosecute workers’ compensation claims fraud. Local claims professionals can train you to identify potentially fraudulent claims from your employees. If a claim warrants further investigation, the carrier will perform a special investigation. If there is probable cause, the case will be turned over to the appropriate law enforcement agency.

How are claims handled?
The carriers’ nationwide networks of experienced claims professionals will provide you with prompt claims service.

How is litigation managed?
With this program you have a powerful defense against the cost of workers’ compensation litigation through the carriers’ emphasis on prevention, sensitive claims handling and in-house legal case management.

What payment options are available?
You can choose from a number of convenient payment plans, all available with no interest charges.
