Workers’ compensation represents an increasingly complex and costly benefit that can have a significant impact on your bottom line and most important resource—your employees.
Workers’ compensation cost and complexity are being driven by a number of factors:
The aging of America’s workforce
A growing presence of comorbid medical conditions, such as hypertension, obesity, and diabetes impacting work injuries and recovery times
Escalating pharmacy costs and narcotic use/abuse
Rising inpatient and outpatient medical costs
Changing state and federal regulatory requirements, including Electronic Data Interface (EDI) reporting requirements, Medicare Affordable Care Act, Medicare Secondary Payer, and ICD-10.
