Work-Related Injury
Work-Related Injury


Worker's compensation is a type of insurance employers pay for to provide medical care and lost-wage benefits to employees that injure themselves in the course of their employment. Kansas Spine & Specialty Hospital accepts worker's compensation patients and strives to provide the best medical care anywhere. If you have an injury that occurred while at work, you must apply for worker's compensation coverage with your employer. The employer must then file an injury report with the Kansas Department of Labor. The Employer's Worker's Compensation Insurance Carrier must authorize the services prior to them being received.


Worker's compensation benefits will generally pay for any medical care to include surgical operations that are deemed related to the work-related injury. These benefits will remain in place until the patient has reached maximum medical improvement (MMI).
