Today’s issue of WorkCompRecap features the release of a new report from Health Strategy Associates on the results of their 2012 Survey of Workers’ Comp Bill Review. According to the results, the single largest issue currently facing workers’ comp bill review is the need to more thoroughly link medical management determinations and the actual payment and processing of medical bills.
The survey also noted that Payers view bill review as significantly more important than provider networks, case management, utilization review, or other medical management services, yet most bill review systems are still a long way from “full, seamless integration”. The survey also explored pricing, vendors, internal-versus-outsourced Bill Review processing and other aspects of the industry.
