Today’s issue of WorkCompRecap features Safety National’s recent announcement of a new webinar aimed at taking a practical look at the current state of medicinal marijuana and examine its role in workers’ compensation programs.
Safety National noted that since medicinal marijuana has already been legalized in 29 states and D.C., and 12 more states have pending legislation, it’s time for the workers’ comp industry to embrace the new reality and learn how to incorporate the use of medicinal marijuana into claims handling where appropriate. Key subjects for discussion in the webinar will include key differences between medicinal and recreational marijuana, legal issues that vary by state, actual tangible ideas on how to begin implementation into programs, characteristics of claims that typically respond well to medicinal marijuana treatment, and case studies that show how medicinal marijuana has helped to reduce costs and improve outcome potential. The webinar is slated for July 20 at 1pm CT.
