Worker’s Comp in Oklahoma City, OK
At Immediate Care of Oklahoma, We Are Dedicated to Helping Employees Who Have Been Injured to Recover Quickly & Return Back to Work Safely. We Have 7 Locations in OKC, Edmond, and Norman, OK.
First and Foremost with respect to “on the job” injuries and illness is Prompt Attention. Seeking professional medical care promptly is a critical piece to the process of regaining individual health and wellbeing, as well as the integrity of an employer’s position both physically and financially. There is incredible value to all parties in handling work related injury in a knowledgeable, timely, and cost effective manner. Our professional and trained staff is prepared to assist individuals and employers with injury analysis, initial and on-going treatment, rehabilitation, drug testing, and return to work services when these circumstances occur.
One Very Important Key in this process is Communication. Although first on the agenda is the health and care of the employee, maintaining excellent communication between the employer, the provider and the ICO staff is critically important for controlling short and long-term medical costs and lost work hours.
We will ensure the employee the very best treatment and work with them to secure their medical needs, including rehabilitation.
We are also very committed to the employer and assisting them through maximum cooperation and aggressive back-to-work and modified work plans that decrease out-of-pocket expenses.
Another Valuable Key to the process is Relationship. Critical to the Communication Key is establishing an account with Immediate Care of Oklahoma that provides quick and easy authorization to treat by a designated and authorized representative of the company. If your company does not have a relationship with Immediate Care, the individual presenting for treatment should be accompanied by a representative from your company or must have your company’s authorization form with them, including the company’s physical and financial demographics and especially a contact name and phone number.
ICO will reach out to the primary contact individual immediately to confirm and secure information and required protocols so that treatment can begin. After said confirmation and initial treatment of the employee has begun, additional information and form completion may be needed and ICO staff will re-contact to your company any forms and the process.
COMPANIES WITHOUT AN ESTABLISHED ACCOUNT: If you are reading and researching and are aware that your company does not have a relationship established with Immediate Care, please contact us today. We will be more than happy to move this process forward immediately and before you need us.
If the injury establishes a “Case File and Number” and is being handled by a WC Administrator, please be assured we will work just as diligently with that individual to ensure both the employee’s care and expedient return to or modified work status and do so as economically as possible. We are very familiar with that process, regulations, and protocol and therefore assist employers in many ways. Again, communication and full disclosure on your company’s part enables us to be much more effective in every area and level.
Immediate Care is a “walk-in” medical facility with X-ray and lab facilities on-site. No Appointment Necessary and wait time is minimal. You can also Get in Line Ahead of Time by using our online check-in. By seeking treatment for work related injuries with us instead of an emergency room, your company will save money.
