FLORIDA-CERTIFIED WORKERS’ COMP PHYSICIANS – WORKERS’ COMP INJURY, OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH & PHYSICAL THERAPY SERVICES

We know on-the-job injuries can be expensive, time-consuming, and disruptive to your business. That’s why our physicians are specially trained to give your employees the individualized medical attention they need to get them back on their feet as soon as possible through safe, effective treatment with measurable outcomes.

Most of our patients are seen, treated, and released in less than an hour. MD Now cares for patients and strives to get them back to full duty as soon as possible through our progressive approach and a modified duty philosophy. Avoid the expense and inconvenience of traditional hospital-based systems or work comp specialty companies.

Three key facts every business should know about workers’ comp:

  1. Men are more likely to get hurt on the job than women. But while men are more susceptible to traumatic and permanent injuries, women are more likely to file mental stress and cumulative-injury claims.
  2. Although many workers aren’t well versed in workers’ compensation laws, they do understand they’re entitled to see a doctor. A delay in providing medical treatment often results in an employee calling a lawyer. In Florida alone, 38% of employees with indemnity claims used an Attorney.
  3.  The total cost of health insurance fraud in the United States (including untruthful medical claims) was more than $59 billion in 1995, resulting in a cost of $1050 in added premiums for the average American family. Studies show that employers with aggressive return-to-work programs can reduce the cost of occupational disability by an average of 40%, and non-occupational disability by 23%.

MD Now is the largest and fastest growing independent provider of urgent care services in South Florida, and we can treat your employees at a lower cost and more efficiently. We have AHCA-licensed urgent care centers conveniently located across Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami-Dade counties, and all of our clinics are open 8 a.m. – 8 p.m., 365 days per year, giving you easy access to care you can trust. Our state-of-the-art licensed facilities have been awarded the Certified Urgent Care Center (Category 1) designation and received accreditation from the Urgent Care Association of America and the American Academy of Urgent Care Medicine, both signifying MD Now’s commitment to the highest level of quality care.

We facilitate timely and effective communication with you or your company’s case managers and we promise that your employee will be seen by a physician—not a nurse practitioner or a physician assistant – to ensure that your company will be represented and prepared with documentation from a Florida-certified workers’ comp physician on any workers’ compensation claim.
