In this webinar, Dr. Carl Shin who has been treating injured workers for more than 20 years in Sacramento, CA, shares his ideas on how to most efficiently manage worker's compensation patients. The webinar will focus on the following key questions:
What are the major current challenges to being a treater for injured workers?
What does it mean to be a primary or secondary treater?
Do I need my name on the authorization letter to ensure payment?
Do I need authorization for every f/u visit and how often should I see the patients?
Do I wait for medical records?
How choosy should I be in accepting new patients?
Do I have to see patients forever? How and when does it end?
Do I have to examine the patient every visit?
Nothing has happened since the last visit... What do I do?
Can I get paid for peer to peer phone calls and all the other extra work required?
