As specialists in the management of workers compensation injuries and claims MidAmerica is pleased to offer client specific services. The goal of this program is to work in partnership with employers, insurance companies, third party administrators and case managers to address their specific needs with respect to the management of workers compensation claims. We can also assist employers in developing a workers compensation program to help manage their claims.
MidAmerica believes that we all benefit from reducing the overall cost of workers compensation claims and we want to be at the forefront, with you, in addressing this complicated and multifactorial issue. Our physicians institute treatment plans with the goal of providing the highest quality of upper extremity care to achieve the best outcomes in the most cost effective manner.
However, we must look further to help control the cost of claims and believe that a strong return to work program represents a tremendous opportunity to reduce indemnity costs. Studies have shown that early return to modified duty release and full duty is a major determinant in employee retention, indemnity costs and in the final total cost of any workers compensation claim. Our team can work with you to help develop a strong return to work program, as well as, help assess the work environment to reduce the risk of injuries.
For both traumatic and non-traumatic injuries MidAmerica Hand To Shoulder Clinic can provide the first line of care. Seeing a specialist in hand and upper extremity conditions at the time of injury of shortly thereafter provides the best opportunity to provide definitive care, set early return to work goals, reduce the cost of workers compensation claims, and achieve the best possible results and outcomes.
Look for new programs to be rolled out by MidAmerica in the coming months.
