FAQs

Patients do not need a referral. However, they need a compensable workers’ compensation claim. The employer should fill out an Employer Authorization for Examination and/or Treatment form and email it to the OEC at OchsnerEmployerConnect@ochsner.org or give it to the patient to bring to the appointment.

You can find a listing of open occupational health positions on our Ochsner Health Careers page.
