St. Louis, MO – Out Front Ideas with Kimberly and Mark has announced its next complimentary webinar, noting that for years, workers’ compensation has been driven by conflict. Payers often look for ways to dispute claims rather than focusing on finding ways to provide useful benefits for the injured worker. Because of this, injured workers retain attorneys who they feel will protect their interests. This conflict drives up costs within the system and slows the delivery of benefits.
The Alliance of Women in Workers’ Compensation is hosting a conference in Boston on March 9th, titled “Creating an Advocacy-Based Claims Model.” This webinar will explore topics discussed there, including the rationale behind an advocacy-based claims model that engages all key stakeholders with a consistent approach and truly strives to provide the best outcome for the injured worker. Our guests are participants in the collaborative event and will join us to share their insights and recommendations.
- Key elements that should be included in the design of an advocacy-based claims model.
- Important considerations and obstacles that must be overcome for implementation.
- How stakeholders like employers, payers, service providers and attorneys can build a business case around adopting such a model.
- How this model helps to increase employee satisfaction and, ultimately, reduce costs.
- Denise Zoe Algire, Director of Managed Care & Disability, Corporate Risk Management at Albertsons Safeway
- Artemis Emslie, President at myMatrixx
- Noreen Olson, Manager, Claims at Starbucks
- Kathy Tazic, Managing Director, National Accounts at Sedgwick
The webinar is scheduled for March 15 at 11:00 AM CST.
