In California, most employers are required by law to carry workers’ compensation insurance. If you were injured at work, suffered an injury as a result of work-related activities, or have become ill because of work, there is a good chance that you are eligible for workers’ comp benefits. These benefits should cover your lost income, medical costs, and other expenses. For more detailed information about reporting a work-related injury and filing a claim, please visit the Department of Industrial Relations Workers’ Comp page.

In order to receive fair and accurate benefits from workers’ comp, you will need appropriate medical documentation.

For Golden State Orthopedics & Spine to bill for a work-related injury, we must have an authorization from your workers’ compensation carrier prior to receiving treatment. Should a work-related injury be identified after treatment has begun, it will not be possible to bill your workers’ compensation carrier for costs already incurred.

For employers, case managers, and claims adjusters, we strive to ensure an efficient and trouble-free process in scheduling appointments, answering questions, and providing assistance wherever needed.

The specially educated staff of our established Workers’ Compensation Department understands the challenges inherent in Worker Compensation cases and will facilitate the many business-related aspects of the program. While our physicians treat the physical needs of the patient, the staff facilitates appointments, work status, and doctor communication.

Our workers’ compensation team first considers nonsurgical, conservative treatment, and will only recommend surgery as a last resort.

We look forward to meeting your needs and those of your injured workers by providing exceptional care, timely reporting and appropriate early return to work.

If you are an attorney or adjuster, please visit this GSOS-Worker-Comp-Guideline-2022 for our office policy and the authorization process. Thank you.
