Workers' Comp Q & A

What is workers’ comp?

Workers’ comp is a type of insurance that pays lost wages and medical bills if an employee experiences a work-related illness or injury. The amount of benefits you receive depends on several factors, including the medical issue experienced and the severity of your symptoms.

In the state of Maryland, any regular payroll employee is covered under workers’ comp insurance.

What types of issues can benefit from workers’ comp?

You might benefit from workers’ comp at Nova Interventional Pain Management if you experience any of the following work-related illnesses or injuries:

  • Overexertion 
  • Slips or trips
  • Falls from a height
  • Sprains
  • Strains
  • Being struck by an object
  • Respiratory issues, like asthma or allergies

You should also contact the team at Nova Interventional Pain Management if you drive a commercial vehicle and you’re involved in a car accident.

How do I access workers’ comp benefits?

To access workers’ comp benefits, you need to alert your employer. If you experience an injury while you’re on the clock, stop whatever you’re doing and contact your direct supervisor. Let them know what happened, and then call Nova Interventional Pain Management.

The team always makes time for same-day workers’ comp visits, allowing for prompt diagnosis and treatment.

What happens during a workers’ comp visit?

During a workers’ comp visit, your Nova Interventional Pain Management provider reviews your medical records and asks about your symptoms. Then, they conduct a physical exam. If you have a sore joint or you fell, your provider checks your muscle strength, reflexes, and range of motion. They also have you perform a series of easy exercises.

If you’re experiencing respiratory issues, like shortness of breath or wheezing, your provider orders spirometry and other lung tests.

Next, your provider orders diagnostic imaging, like X-rays, a CT scan, or an MRI. After diagnosing your work-related illness or injury, your provider develops a custom treatment plan. They also fill out paperwork for your employer as part of the workers’ compensation claim.

Are there any injuries that workers’ comp doesn’t cover?

Workers’ comp insurance only provides coverage for injuries and illnesses that occur when you’re complying with all of your employer’s rules and regulations. You might be denied coverage if your injury or illness occurs due to:

  • Drug or alcohol use
  • Violations of company policy
  • A physical fight or altercation
  • Criminal activities
