About Appletree’s WSIB Management Program
Lost labour time due to workplace injury places tremendous strain on the worker, the employer, and society. When an employee is injured at work, rapid access to same-day care is critical. The sooner an injured employee is seen by a doctor, the sooner they can begin their recovery and the more likely that they will successfully reintegrate into the workplace. Appletree offers employers a WSIB Management Program that provides injured employees with prompt WSIB assessments, typically on the same day.
It is advantageous to both employee and employer to be assessed by a physician who is highly knowledgeable about WSIB processes, and who also who specializes in treating patients with occupational injuries. Thanks to our broad network Medical Centres, we have many doctors who will assess your injured worker promptly and thoroughly. You simply call our Occupational Health Program coordinator, and they will arrange a same-day appointment for your injured employee at a location convenient to them.
How Does It Work?
Members can simply call our Occupational Health Program coordinator, and they will arrange a same-day appointment for your injured employee at a location convenient to them. All appointments are booked via our program coordinator and services are available seven days a week.
What to Expect at Your Appointment
If a workplace injury occurs, ﬁnd the closest Appletree Medical Centre to you. Appointments are not required. An Appletree physician will assess your employee’s needs and complete the required documents. We will then forward the documents to WSIB on your behalf. After the appointment, your employees are provided with a free Appletree Patient Portal account, where their medical results or test results will be made available through a safe and secure database.
Frequently Asked Questions
What forms does your employee need to bring?
Appletree Medical Group keeps a copy of all required forms on ﬁle, so no forms are needed. We will ensure that the appropriate form is completed and sent to WSIB.
How long does it take to be seen?
As a member of our program, you can either call your dedicated staff member — who will book a same-day appointment — or your employee can use our wait-time tool on our website to pick the clinic with the shortest wait time, or the most convenient location.
The time spent with the physician depends on the presenting injury, but generally speaking, we can have your staff in and out of the clinic with a minimum number of hours lost.
