Patients from a number of work backgrounds can experience a work-related orthopedic injury to the knee or shoulder. Joint injuries can occur during a fall, from blunt trauma, from repetitive movements or during an automobile accident in a company vehicle.
If your orthopedic injury is due to an accident in the work place, please be sure to contact your employer immediately and inform them of your injury.
For patients whose orthopedic injury is work related, you must provide Dr. Provencher’s office with all pertinent information listed below, such as insurance carrier, claim number, date of injury, adjuster’s name, phone number and fax number before the appointment is scheduled.
The following information must be obtained and verified prior to your visit with Dr. Provencher:
- Date of Injury
- Case or claim number
- WCAB#, if applicable
- Workers’ compensation carrier information
- Adjuster’s name
- Adjuster’s telephone number

Our office needs to receive authorization from your employer before we can process any medical claims. Failure to properly report your work injury to your employer may result in your claims being denied. Denied claims will be your responsibility.
