Things to Know about WSIB
Claim Number: This is your identification with WSIB about your work-related injury and the programs of care you are entitled to receive treatment under. If you have gone through the process with a health professional and filled out paperwork about your injury (FORM 8), then chances are you have a claim number or one is being created for you. If you have recently been injured and have not filled out a FORM 8, no need to worry! Our team at Footprint Health and Wellness Centre can take you through the process and submit the paperwork to WSIB.
Programs of Care: Depending on the area of your body that is injured, WSIB will determine which program of care (POC) you are entitled to receive treatment under. For example, if your shoulder is injured, you will be placed in the Shoulder POC. If there are multiple areas of your body that are injured as a result of the workplace injury, it is important to make sure your employer and WSIB are aware. Our team at Footprint Health and Wellness Centre will work with you to submit any paperwork required for the programs of care you need and help ensure that you receive the treatment you require to get back to work and feeling your best!
Treatment Programs: Because every individual is different, as is their injury, it is hard to say exactly how long it will take to return to full duties. Most WSIB programs of care allow for 8 weeks of treatment if needed, and there are options that
can be worked out with the employer in most cases for modified duties and/or hours as we help you build up your health and strength to return to working at full capacity. Our team at Footprint Health and Wellness Centre will work with you and help communicate with WSIB about your treatment protocol so that you can feel comfortable about your treatment and plans to return to work.
