Come visit our facility! See the quality of care, compassion, and respect given to all patients!
The treatment of workers’ comp patients is an integral part of APMSS. We welcome the opportunity to meet you!
The treatment and goal of the Practice is to improve the efficiency of workers’ comp patient care, and save time when during patients’ office visits. We will communicate all patient care or treatment plan changes to insure the highest level of patient care and MMI (maximum medical improvement).
Check the current list of preferred providers to confirm that Dr. Daitch, Dr. Frey, and Dr. Martinez are contracted with your carrier. If their names do not appear on the list, please contact the WC Coordinator to verify.
The WC Coordinator can be contacted via:
The workers’ compensation insurance carrier can directly contact our Workers’ Comp Coordinator at (239) 337.6806 or email at email@example.com to schedule the initial evaluation.
We accept most states as well as Federal (Department of Labor) claims. Please contact our Workers’ Comp Coordinator to check the status of a specific state.
Contact the APMSS Work Comp Coordinator. But the Workers’ Comp Coordinator cannot schedule an appointment until the injured worker’s complete medical records have arrived at APMSS. It is the responsibility of the Workers’ Comp carrier to expedite the records including all radiological films or disks.
The treating provider will evaluate the work status and restrictions during every appointment.
A DWC-25 Form is a work comp report that the provider completes and signs after each patient’s appointment. When it is completed, the DWC -25 is sent to the assigned adjuster or nurse case manager by the Work Comp Coordinator. The Form should be submitted within twenty-four (24) hours after the patient visit.
Florida is the only state that requires the DWC-25 be submitted after each injured worker’s office visit for a Florida work comp claim.
MMI is the abbreviation for “maximum medical improvement.”
Maximum medical improvement occurs when an injured employee reaches a state where his or her condition cannot be improved any further or when a treatment plateau in a person’s healing is reached.
PIR means permanent impairment rating.
The treating physician determines PIR for an injured worker.
The amount of treatment time is depends on the severity of the injury and is decided by the doctor, adjuster and nurse manager if one is assigned.
The APMSS Work Comp Coordinator can be contacted by telephone at 239.337.6806 or send an email to Workcomp@apmss.net. All telephone calls will be returned by the end of the business day.
