The Workers’ Comp Process
Dr. Arango has taken a keen interest in Florida’s workers’ compensation system and can help you navigate the intricacies and legal obligations to complete the workers’ comp process successfully. He has extensive knowledge of medical treatments and a thorough understanding of what is required to obtain treatment authorization from insurance companies.
We know that reporting delays result in treatment delays, impacting your recovery. The staff at Royal Palm Orthopedics has expertise in managing the appeals process, filing reports, and working with insurance companies. However, if the appeals and reports aren’t successful, Dr. Arango will consult with other orthopedic surgeons to receive authorization for medical treatment.
Establishing Work Restrictions
After obtaining treatment authorization, Dr. Arango works with your employer and insurance company to determine appropriate work restrictions. Dr. Arango provides early diagnosis for a timely, cost-effective, minimally invasive treatment plan to help you heal while reducing time lost from work.
