In addition to serving as a QME we, at Foothill Psychological Associates, also treat injured workers through Workers' Compensation insurance programs. We are on a number of Medical Provider Networks (MPNs).
Workers who have experienced psychological injury during the course of their employment, either directly or subsequent to physical injury often experience trauma, depression and/or anxiety. We provide a comprehensive program of assessment and treatment if we are on your employer's MPN. Check out the Injured Worker Guidebook for more details or visit the State of California's Web Site for the Department of Industrial Relations.
If you have been injured at work nearly every employer is required by state law to provide workers' compensation insurance coverage for it's employees. Make an injury report and request to see a Workers' Compensation doctor in the MPN for evaluation and treatment.
