Worker’s compensation cases
At Elborno Center in Willowbrook, we welcome worker’s compensation patients. Worker’s compensation patients differ from typical group health plan patients. These patients have usually suffered an injury at work that has led to a chronic pain condition. Within the worker’s compensation system, not just in Illinois but in every state, there are specific treatment guidelines that come from both the national and state levels. These guidelines focus on the appropriate care of the injured worker, depending on circumstance. For instance, federal and state worker’s comp guidelines are similar in the typical medications that are to be used to treat the injured worker. These guidelines also detail what is viewed as inappropriate within the worker’s compensation system.
Dr. Elborno has extensive experience working within the worker’s compensation system, ensuring that Elborno Center patients can get the pain management they need through the worker’s compensation insurance provider.
