Catastrophic Care

Your injured employee may be coasting along with fairly predictable claims costs and suddenly something happens and they need surgery. If there are complications, costs can skyrocket. HomeCare Connect knows the cost drivers in catastrophic and complex claims and how to mitigate them.

First, we hand-pick providers with expertise in treating catastrophic cases. Second, each complex claim is assigned to one of our Clinical Care Coordinators (CCCs), who have a minimum of an RN degree and usually advanced credentials in catastrophic case management and extensive workers’ compensation experience.

CCCs oversee in-home assessments and evaluations, closely monitor lab work and changes in physical condition and anticipate age- and injury-related situations to avoid costly — and often unnecessary — hospitalizations, surgeries or other expensive treatment. CCCs also hold regular roundtable discussions with our Medical Director and the Director of Clinical Services to ensure that all injured employees consistently receive the best possible care. And, they stay connected with the injured worker, physician, adjuster and/or nurse case manager and other stakeholders on the claim to avoid unpleasant surprises.

Costs Savings Reports, delivered on the client’s schedule, keep claims on track financially and help capture savings. Additional and very significant savings can be found in our exclusive re-pricing program.

Services Include:

  • Injured Worker Home Assessments/Evaluations
  • Chronic Wound Care Management

DME & Medical Supplies

HomeCare Connects delivers the right medical equipment and supplies just when the injured employee needs them.

Home Modification

Not all contractors can modify homes to accommodate injured employees. Some overbuild, some never finish the jobs, and some just don’t understand how to retrofit for mobility.

HomeCare Connect takes the pain out of your home modifications.

Our modification specialists determine the scope of work and make sure recommended modifications are needed and appropriate. We conduct an on-site visit to the home, taking measurements and photos. A detailed quote explains what needs to be done, estimates costs and explains how changes will address functional status, medical condition, accessibility barriers, and other requirements. Work is completed by one of the licensed, ADA-certified and credentialed contractors in our national network.

We oversee the contractors, manage the project and provide weekly updates through the project’s completion. Modifications are completed on time and within the budget. The final report recaps how the modifications met your injured employee’s needs.

HomeCare Connect makes sure that your home modifications are done right the first time and that they address the needs of your injured employee.

Orthotics & Prosthetics

Few injuries are more traumatic than amputations. These seriously injured employees need special care from experienced and empathetic orthotic and prosthetic (O&P) providers.

The O&P providers in our national network understand workers’ compensation. They recognize the need for speed and schedule clinical assessments as soon as possible after surgery. Our O&P experts determine the best prosthetic for the condition, educate the injured person on its use, and work with physical therapists and other providers to help the patient heal and adapt. Dedicated Clinical Care Coordinators help injured employees and payers navigate the process.

Amputations and subsequent prosthetic services and devices are the most expensive injuries in workers’ compensation. Our care-driven approach ensures that injured employee receive the right prosthetic device and care in the most cost-effective manner.

Our bill review specialists realize the importance of preparing quotes that can be authorized easily by claims managers who do not deal with amputations on a daily basis. Our specialized reviewers know the manufacturers, understand the thousands of unique prosthetic billing codes, and can negotiate the best prices.

Clients enjoy an average savings of 16% on prosthetics. Injured employees receive prompt and expert care.

Services Include:

  • Pre-assessment amputation consultation
  • National network of certified O&P providers
  • Streamlined referral and treatment process
  • O&P Peer Review
