Workers' Compensation

Workers' compensation is a state-mandated insurance program that provides compensation to employees who have job-related injuries and illnesses.

If you are an employee who needs workers’ compensation care for an injury that took place at work, the Missouri Occupational Injury Center at University of Missouri Health Care can help. We offer complete workers’ compensation care for musculoskeletal (bone and muscle) injuries at the request of any employer or insurance carrier. We are the only MU Health Care clinic dedicated solely to the treatment of work-related injuries.

Our team stays in open communication with you and your employer, as well as insurance adjusters and case managers, to help you recover and return to work as quickly as possible.
