BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.
To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.
To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.
Using a third-party administrator for workers compensation programs doesn't mean handing off claims and case management work to someone else and moving on to other things.
Risk managers with successful self-insured programs for workers compensation benefits know that relationships with TPAs involve tough decisions and a lot of mutual effort. And taking a hands-on, collaborative approach to the TPA relationship can improve outcomes for the employer and its injured workers.
This white paper from Business Insurance explores the business case for taking a more hands-on approach to TPA relationships, as well as some of the best practices to ensure the success of those partnerships, including how to establish accountability and manage caseloads. In addition, the white paper offers perspectives on deciding whether to pay extra for some services—such as additional adjusters or nurse case managers—that might save money in the long run.
