This session will discuss COVID-19’s impact on the day to day operation of our national workers’ compensation system. In just nine short months, we have witnessed abrupt and drastic changes in how we investigate new claims, define a compensable accident, calculate average weekly wage and benefit rates, ensure prompt medical treatment, schedule independent medical examinations, manage return to work programs, and access the court system. These changes require us to rethink our claims handling and litigation management procedures. The claimsXchange looks forward to discussing these changes and to assist you with developing new strategies in your daily operations.
