Chicago, IL – Governor Pat Quinn has just reappointed Kimberly Moreland, Executive Vice President of Client Services at Rising Medical Solutions, to the State of Illinois Workers’ Compensation Medical Fee Advisory Board. Moreland has served on the Board since 2008.
Moreland is one of nine appointees on the Board which consists of a balanced representation: three members represent employees, three represent employers, and three represent medical providers. Moreland is an employer representative that advises the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission on matters related to: state-regulated fees for medical services and accessibility to treatment for injured Illinois workers.
With more than 18 years of industry experience, and through Rising’s provision of national medical cost containment programs, Moreland has developed significant knowledge of all state fee schedules and related laws and can therefore provide a comprehensive view of fee schedule trends, methodologies, reimbursement rates, coding rules, compliance issues, and legislative successes and failures.
“It’s an honor to retain my Board seat and gain the confidence of a new Illinois administration,” says Moreland. “Having the continued opportunity to affect change and improvement in my home state’s workers’ compensation system – a system that really impacts businesses and people’s lives – is very gratifying, personally and professionally.”
Moreland’s reappointment will run through 2013.
