What is workers’ compensation?

Workers’ compensation is a type of health insurance that covers medical costs and lost wages for workers injured on the job. Employers are required to have workers’ compensation insurance to cover these costs and take care of their employees. 


Not all healthcare providers take workers’ compensation insurance because it often requires additional paperwork. My NP is an occupational medicine practice specializing in work injuries, providing expert and efficient workers’ compensation care. 

When do I need workers’ compensation care?

You need workers’ compensation care when you have a work-related injury. These types of injuries vary and may depend on your job. Types of work injuries include:


  • Acute injuries such as a fall or car accident (job-related)
  • Chronic injuries that develop over time 
  • Illness from workplace chemical exposure


You should seek medical care for any work injury as soon as it happens. The sooner you get care, the faster you can expect to recover. 


My NP offers fast triage and open communication between employee and employer; the patient receives immediate first aid and the ongoing care necessary to heal.

What can I expect during workers’ compensation care?

You can expect comprehensive and patient-centered care from the team at My NP when you come in for workers’ compensation care. They ask detailed questions about your injury, including how it happened, your symptoms, and the activities that make it worse.
