ABSTRACT
The article offers tips on how to avoid trouble during workers' compensation (WC) billing. It is stated that when a patient calls to schedule his first appointment for an injury that could have been on the job, the employer should first ask whether the injury is work-related. It is mentioned that many times a patient will sustain an injury in one state, but seek treatment in another. In these cases, the employer should follow the rules for the state in which the injury occurred.
