These may be long-term claims and for some reason the medical status may have recently changed.
Cases in which CompAlliance may have an impact:
- There may be multiple physicians now treating the recovering worker.
- The new CDC Opioid Guidelines or updated prescription opioid legislation in a specific state. As a result, a second look at current treatment or ongoing opioid use may be warranted. Intervention by a case manager may assist the claims professional in bringing the medical care or medications back under control.
- Increasing focus and acceptance regarding the concept of transitional duty RTW in the workers’ compensation industry. An assessment to determine if an update to functional capabilities might facilitate a transitional return to work may be beneficial.
- Any or all of these interventions could yield significant case savings and/or increased quality of life for the recovering worker.
