Workers' Compensation

UC San Diego Health is committed to working with employers to help manage their workers’ compensation costs. Injured workers are treated promptly and receive quality patient care at an affordable cost. Timely communication with the employer, insurance carrier or third-party administrator facilitates overall claim management while reducing costs.

Highlights of Our Care Services

  • Board-certified occupational medicine physicians: All work injuries will be evaluated and treated promptly by board-certified occupational medicine physicians. Return-to-work programs are strongly supported.
  • Same-day appointments: Treatment authorization forms can be sent to the clinic prior to the injured worker's arrival.
  • Timely and effective communication: The employer will receive a notification of the employee’s work status after every visit. A medical provider is also available to discuss issues pertinent to the case.
  • Case coordination: We offer case coordination and management to employers and insurance carriers to ensure efficient handling of work injury cases.
