Today’s issue of WorkCompRecap features the announcement of a new episode of Out Front Ideas, where experts will discuss the benefits and challenges of guidelines in workers’ comp, including medical treatment and return-to-work guidelines, as well as drug formularies.
Now that several states have adopted various guidelines, and as more consider implementation, its important to cover pros & cons from a variety of viewpoints. Key points of discussion will include whether guidelines are fulfilling their intended role, difficulties created by the lack of guideline consensus across stakeholders, and the complexities associated with implementation, regulatory considerations for evaluation and adoption, and the potential that guidelines and formularies have to make a positive impact. The free webcast is scheduled for tomorrow, February 9, at 11am CT.
