Worker's Compensation Q&A

What is workers’ compensation?

Workers’ compensation (often shortened to workers’ comp) is an employer-funded program that pays for the medical care you receive for injuries, illnesses, or diseases you suffered or contracted as a result of your job.


Montgomery Family Care works closely with worker’s compensation patients to give them the exceptional care they need and ensure that they don’t pay out-of-pocket for medical expenses.

Why might I receive workers’ compensation?

You could be eligible for workers’ compensation if you’ve been injured at work, were exposed to toxic chemicals at work, or developed other medical problems directly related to performing your workplace duties.

Symptoms of work-related injuries include pain, swelling, stiffness, bruising, difficulty breathing, vision problems, and hearing problems.

Talk to your employer to determine if you’re eligible for workers’ compensation reimbursement. Montgomery Family Care offers workers’ compensation evaluations and highly effective treatments.

What happens during worker’s compensation visits?

During workers’ compensation appointments at Montgomery Family Care, your provider discusses your symptoms, medical history, accident history, and the medications you might be taking. They check your blood pressure, pulse, and other vital signs.

Your provider completes a thorough physical exam, looking for signs of injuries, illnesses, and diseases. They assess your eyes, ears, breathing, heartbeat, abdomen, limbs, musculoskeletal function, and more. In some cases, they’ll evaluate your vision and hearing.

The Montgomery Family Care team could recommend that you undergo urine, blood, heart-function, and/or breathing tests. They might also ask for X-rays, an ultrasound, an MRI, a CT scan, or other imaging procedures to diagnose your condition and create a treatment plan.

What treatments are available?

If you have an illness, disease, or injury you’ve acquired in the course of your employment duties, Montgomery Family Care providers offer treatments that help you recover as quickly as possible.

They might suggest that you have physical therapy, take medication, wear a brace or cast, use an inhaler, or receive injections. They could send you to a specialist for a complex medical problem.

Montgomery Family Care providers work with you to find a treatment that meets your needs. They also make sure you receive the workers’ compensation reimbursement you’re allowed by law.
