Wisconsin Worker’s Compensation is a strong payer and offers a great opportunity for serving our injured workers. The
presenters will discuss how the physical therapist can establish themselves as an integral and effective member of the worker’s
compensation team. They will review the role of the PT in injury prevention and resolution, and how to work effectively with
payers, employers and claims managers. Participants will also learn how to document and bill within this system.
