The Workers Compensation Research Institute will explore the impact of policy changes on hospital reimbursement rates in states including Florida, Georgia, Indiana and North Carolina during a one-hour webinar next month.
WCRI Senior Analyst Carol Telles will explain changes to hospital payments in different states and the effect on costs, while also discussing whether the changes resulted in unanticipated consequences.
"In many states, system stakeholders are looking to control the growth of hospital costs in their workers' compensation systems without causing access-to-care issues," Ramona Tanabe, WCRI's executive vice president and counsel, said in a statement. "The research discussed in this webinar will give decision-makers some insight about what happened after some states implemented a fee schedule or a change in fee schedule approach."
The seminar starts at 1 p.m. Eastern on Jan. 18. WCRI webinars are free for members and $50 for non-members.
