Workers’ Compensation

DFP’s team of specialists and surgeons are dedicated to providing expert care for the injured worker. Our doctors are experts in the field and believe that effective and prompt treatment offers the best chance at recovering from an injury and returning to an active lifestyle. DFP’s goal is provide high quality, expert, and ethical patient care that fits the needs of the injured worker and their situation.

Work-related injuries are complicated. Injured workers will benefit from our expert care and our knowledge and experience in handling sensitive and important work issues, especially when it comes to communicating with case managers, insurance companies, and the employer.

In the U.S., workers’ compensation is managed on a state-by-state basis. If you are a federal employee, the federal government has its own policy and program for injured workers.

DFP accepts workers’ compensation as a form of insurance and will gladly assist you in filing your insurance claims for orthopaedic surgeries and procedures. Although we work with various providers and policies, it is impossible for us to know the specifics of your plan. Additionally, DFP cannot participate in the negotiation of your settlement with your carrier over disputed claims, medical-legal situation, or divorce, as we are not party to those contracts.

If you are seeking compensation through Workers’ Compensation, we may disclose your protected health information to the extent necessary to comply with laws relating to Workers Compensation.
