Medical expenses will soon account for more than 60% of costs associated with workers’ compensation claims. Even so, traditional claim reviews tend to focus only a small amount of time, resources and discussion on issues related to medical expenses. As a result, many organizations miss out on the opportunity to reduce costs and decrease time spent on a claim. With the knowledge and understanding of these factors, an organization gains transparency into even the most complex claims. This interactive session will explore the advantages of using medical roundtables as a resource and share the key components to a strong medical roundtable — including who should be involved, how it should be planned and who should facilitate. When all factors are considered, a medical roundtable can be a resource to identify, understand and address specific medical issues that often hold up the status of a claim. We’ll also discuss how a team can work collaboratively to make strategic and tactical decisions and how the right approach can be applied to other claims in the future to ensure success.
