Workers’ Compensation Care
Have you been injured while on the job? Whether you are suffering from an acute injury, acute pain, or chronic pain, our chiropractic specialists will devise a treatment plan that is individualized for your specific needs.
Who is Eligible for Workers’ Comp?
Anytime someone is hurt while on company time, they have the right to receive paid care through workers’ compensation benefits. In the state of Mississippi, all employers with at least five employees are legally required to have workers’ comp insurance. Any injury, no matter how slight, can be covered under these benefits. You will also be entitled to mileage reimbursement for trips to the doctor, as well as wage loss benefits.
Before you seek help for your injury, you must first talk with your employer to open a claim. Mississippi law then allows you to select one medical provider of your own choosing to seek treatment. This provider can then make one referral to a specialist without having to seek approval from your insurance company or your employer. Depending on your personal preferences and your injury, you can either first visit your primary care physician, or come right to Miller-Whitmer Family Chiropractic for treatment. Our staff can help you with all of the required paperwork for your claim to ensure your services are paid for at no cost to you.
