5 Work Comp Truisms – OMCA

Jan

  1. Smaller is better when it comes to effective work comp provider networks.
  2. Discounts off fee schedules are less important than having a physician who wants to treat injured workers, reduces repeat visits and will communicate with all stakeholders.
  3. Treating physicians will voluntarily change their treatment plan if presented with alternatives by specialty match UR physicians using scientific-based medical evidence.
  4. Narcotics are the common thread  in almost all problematic  work comp claims.
  5. Old complex workers’ comp claims can’t be fixed overnight.  Resolving these “ugly files” requires a commitment to eliminate an abusive prescription/ ineffective medical procedure, one remedial step at a time.  This can happen only with aggressive peer monitoring of the treating physician.
