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.
