Prescriptions — Workers' Compensation — Our Pharmacy Network (OPN)

Depending on the severity, certain work-related injuries can be serious enough that injured workers require workers’ comp prescriptions. Our Pharmacy Network is a Florida pharmacy that specializes in handling workers comp claim cases. We work with patients, doctors, lawyers, and payers to ensure that injured workers receive the care they need.

Work-related injuries can be pretty commonplace. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2017, there were 2.8 million nonfatal workplace injuries and illnesses reported. Nearly one-third of these injuries resulted in days away from work. Even though the rate of injuries has decreased compared to last year, many workers are still getting injured on the job. Our Pharmacy Network is dedicated to providing medications to these injured workers when they need it the most.

Common Workers Comp Injury Claims

The median days away from work in 2017 was eight days. The most common work-related injuries that resulted in days away from work included:

  • Overexertion in lifting or lowering objects
  • Bodily reaction as a result of overexposure
  • Falls, slips, and trips
  • Being struck by an object or equipment falling
  • Muscle sprains, strains, and tears
