WorkCompRecap: Now Trending!

Today’s issue of WorkCompRecap features the release of Progressive Medical’s 2013 Drug Trends Report. Key highlights from the report included results of the early intervention program launched last July, which yielded a 15% reduction in morphine equivalence per claim, and a 36.9% reduction in the prescription cost per claim just two months after intervention.

Progressive Medical also noted more claims closing in the acute phase, with programs cutting the likelihood that a claim will mature into a two-year claim by over half. Additonally, use of long-acting and immediate-release opioid analgesics is down while use of anti-inflammatory medications, anticonvulsant and antidepressant medications are either flat or up.
