    Establishing an internal claims process as part of your safety and wellness program helps you get your worker’s the care they need in an expedient manner.  Naturally, a serious injury will necessitate a trip to the emergency room, but many workplace injuries are best cared for at an occupational clinic or urgent care.  The wait times are typically shorter, which is a huge benefit for your employees.  An urgent care will generally cost 30% less than a trip to the ER.  This is clearly a win-win for employees and employers alike.  In short, an injured worker will be seen more quickly at an urgent care clinic at a considerably lower cost to the company. 

    In addition to quicker turnaround times and health solutions for your employees, opportunities also exist for building ongoing relationships with medical offices that specialize in urgent medical care.  This is yet another way to streamline your internal claims processing.  Using providers that are part of a preferred network may be a way to further reduce costs as well as work with a group of healthcare providers who will get to know your employees and help you manage their well-being on the job.
