A designated workers’ compensation coordinator is assigned to each work related injury case and will work closely with employers, occupational medicine clinics, case managers, adjusters and insurance companies.
We are committed to providing the BEST orthopaedic care while reducing both medical costs and lost time from work. Our high quality, cost effective care is just one of the factors making OrthoNebraska the premier provider of orthopaedic care in the region.
Independent Medical Exams (IME) and Second Opinions
It is our goal to provide you with the most comprehensive level of service for your orthopaedic needs. At times, an IME may be requested to carefully evaluate injury causation. Because of this, we’ve partnered up with Merit Medical Evaluations, a network of actively practicing board-certified physicians, to fulfill Level 2 IME requests. Before an IME or second opinion is scheduled, a patient’s previous orthopaedic medical records are reviewed to ensure our physicians will be able to add further value to the case.
Please fax IME and second opinion related medical records to (402) 637-0852 with attention to the requesting physician at OrthoNebraska to complete the exam.
