The medical management team provides heightened communication, facilitating appropriate quality of care while assuring optimum cost-effective solutions. With online access to PPO networks and routine interaction with all claims staff, Case Management services are provided by licensed registered nurses. Each case manager has an average of seven years specializing in Workers' Compensation. Nurses identify and document information for each claim, client and state reporting requirements, the development of a detailed plan of action with specific goals and timeframes.
Like so much of what we do, a plan of action which results in an injured worker's recovery is cost-efficient and requires collaboration and strategy. InterMed helps to reduce the overall cost of claims and increases the closure rate by negotiating treatment plans, customizing early Return To Work schedules and eliminating unnecessary treatment and charges. All claims receive initial nurse triage as part of our standard services, without a fee. Additional Nurse Case Management functions include Field Case Management, obtaining physical restrictions and abilities, communicating an early Return To Work emphasis and keeping injured workers advised along the way.
When appropriate, Case Review and Peer Review identify further savings for the client. InterMed's Case Managers are a proactive task force whose expertise provides our clients with the analysis and medical management of claims.
