About Entera

The Entera Group of Companies has been constructed to offer both traditional and non-traditional methods of workers’ compensation. More importantly, each separate company produces a particular service to achieve an aggregate better result than what is typical of the workers’ compensation industry.

Our market “niche” is providing the services so badly needed in workers’ compensation. Simply put, realize we are going to actually provide the services you deserve and expect.

Entera understands the single most important person in workers’ compensation is the authorized treating physician. Our relationship with our MCO doctors is paramount to achieving successful results for both the injured worker and the employer.
