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”.

Workers comp virtual conference focuses on how to reduce injury exposures

Experts will advise employers how to reduce their workplace injury exposures by improving their workers compensation programs during an upcoming free virtual conference presented by Business Insurance.

Business Insurance's Fourth Annual Workers Compensation Virtual Conference will begin at 10 a.m. EDT Aug. 22.

Because of the event's virtual format, travel is not required; it can be accessed from a laptop, desktop or a tablet from any location.

In addition to online presentations, such as a keynote speech by Dr. Richard A. Victor, executive director of the Workers Compensation Research Institute, the virtual conference also will allow registrants to participate in live chats with the speakers and pose questions immediately following each presentation.

Participants also can join colleagues from across the workers comp industry for informal online chats on current trends during the virtual conference.

Panel presentations will include a discussion on “Getting the Best Results from Workers Compensation Claims Management.”

The panelists are Mark E. Field, risk manager for Raley's Family of Fine Stores; David North, president and CEO at Sedgwick Claims Management Services Inc.; and David Donn, president of David Donn Consulting Inc.

Another panel, “How to Avoid Complications in Medicare Secondary Payer Act Compliance,” will discuss legislation and recent changes as companies attempt to comply with Medicare rules.

The panelists are Roy Franco, principal at Franco Signor L.L.C.; Aaron Frederickson, director, Medicare secondary payer compliance at Allsup Inc.; and Craig Storey, business development executive at Rising Medical Solutions Inc.

Kimberly George, senior vice president of managed care practices and client services at Sedgwick Claims Management Services Inc., will discuss health advocacy as a powerful claims management tool in a panel, titled “Relying on health Advocacy for Improved Results.”

Conference registrants can visit exhibitor booths and interact with the conference's sponsor, Sedgwick, and other exhibitors Safety National Corp. and Gallagher Bassett Services Inc.
