Tips For Dealing With Physicians

In dealing with physicians in managed care environments, it is important that employers and adjusters emphasize to the physician that there are jobs available or that the employee be released as soon as possible and that they treat them effectively and fast to get them back to work as soon as possible. Physicians generally do not make employment decisions but they should make medical decisions as to what the employee can and cannot do. Physicians should understand that a return to work is not something that is done to the individual but for the individual.
