Workers' Comp | Fort Wayne Orthopedics

Let’s Work Together

Everything we do is designed to make the workers’ comp process as easy as possible.

A Single Goal

Our goal is the same as yours. We aim to provide the highest quality care, so our patients can return to work safely, with a lowered chance of another injury. We also know that employers are concerned about costs. At FWO, everything we do is designed to make the workers' comp process as easy as possible for everyone—employers, case managers and patients.

Working for You

At FWO, we understand the complexity of the workers’ comp process. Our experience ensures that our workers’ comp program runs smoothly for all. We promise:

  • Frequent and thorough communication between all parties.
  • Clear timelines, requirements and expectations.
  • Timely responses to employers and workers' comp claims.
  • Lower cost, by utilizing our OrthoStat Walk-in Clinics instead of hospital emergency rooms.

Confident and Committed

At FWO, we have a dedicated workers’ comp coordinator. Our coordinator is your single point of contact, acting on your behalf to expedite services, manage cases, handle communications and serve as a liaison. We make it seamless—which makes everyone’s job easier.

The Pros Know

As the liaison between insurance carriers, patients and physicians, case managers are essential to the workers’ comp process. Their jobs run smoother with support and understanding from the rest of the practice. This is where FWO excels. We have:

  • A dedicated coordinator for workers’ comp cases.
  • Physicians who understand the goals, demands and intricacies of workers’ comp.
  • Thorough knowledge of PPI ratings.
  • Quick information turnaround.
  • Expedited appointments and patient check-in.
  • A private work area for case managers.
  • A helpful, responsive nursing and support staff.

Quality Care Comes First

It’s easy to get lost in the difficult details while handling workers’ comp cases. At FWO, we never lose focus on what matters most–providing the best care for the patient. We consider the wellbeing of patients at every step, work to avoid recurring injuries, and always make our patients feel like people—instead of numbers.
