This WorkCompCentral Special Report looks closely at a vital but poorly understood link in caring for injured workers: how claims payers partner with occupational medicine clinics. The Report draws from extensive interviews with claims payers, employers, occupational medicine physicians, and clinic administrators. In addition, we conducted an online survey of 41 carefully selected seasoned workers' compensation experts ("What the Pros Say"). Any claims payer can implement all recommendations in this report in any state and for any employer. WorkCompCentral shares this Report as part of our commitment to the national workers' compensation community.
