Health Tip: OSI rule

Protect yourself from falls. Fractures are often caused by falls. Protect your bones, especially if you are over the age of 60. Make sure your home is safe by removing items you may trip over, being sure that you have enough lighting, wearing shoes with good support, and installing handrails.

Insurance Coverage

Please remember that we appreciate payment at the time of service. If you do not have insurance coverage, our staff will be happy to discuss payment options for your care. Whether you have insurance or not, it is ultimately your responsibility to be certain your medical bills are paid in full, and to discuss any financial concerns you have with us.

Workers’ Compensation

The OSI Group works closely with many local companies to care for their employees with orthopedic injuries. Our goal for these employees is the same as for any patient — a safe and speedy return to normal activities, including work. If your treatment is the result of a work-related injury, please be sure to notify us at your first appointment so we can assist you with any insurance coverage or financial issues you may have.
