Workers' Compensation - A Cost Savings Approach

October 26

Learn how to effectively cut workers' compensation costs for your company.

Many employers are saddled with workers’ compensation costs that are ballooning out of control. All too often, the rising costs are perceived as being the result of factors that are outside the employers control including doctors who are keeping workers off the job, Judges who interpret facts differently than the employer would have, injured workers who are undergoing excessive medical treatment and litigation that seems to drag on without end. This topic helps professionals responsible for workers’ compensation claims to understand how to reduce the cost of workers’ compensation cases by regaining control of these forces. Learn how to develop and maintain a panel of physicians who are familiar with your worksite and whose treatment guidelines are compatible with reducing medical costs and getting employees back to work. This topic will explain how effectively managing bureau documents and keeping employees working will dramatically reduce the life and cost of a claim. This topic is critical for employers and workers compensation adjusters so they can ensure their workers remain on the job and the costs of their claims remain low.

Learning Objectives

  • You will be able to discuss how to create and maintain a panel of medical providers that will keep employees working and medical costs in check.
  • You will be able to identify when to use a Temporary Notice of Compensation Payable versus a full Notice of Compensation Payable.
  • You will be able to describe how tracking deadlines can mitigate losses throughout the life of a claim.
  • You will be able to explain the cost saving benefits of a strong return-to-work program.
