Frequent Questions & Answers
Why should I utilize nurse case management for my workers compensation claims?
Nurse case managers can significantly reduce the duration and cost of workers compensation claims by guiding injured employees’ medical treatment and coordinating return-to-work efforts. The nurse can be the eyes and ears at MD appointments and can provide all involved parties with an update immediately following the evaluation as opposed to waiting weeks for the medical notes to arrive. Because of the nurse’s medical training, she is able to sort out pre-existing conditions and assist in keeping the MD focused on the work related injury. In addition, this training will allow her to identify any red flags that might appear both early on or as the case progresses.
Through early intervention and utilization of case management services as recommended by our management team, Tandem has consistently offered a return on investment of at least 3:1 for all customers.
The only way to restrict where an injured worker treats is through participation in a State approved managed care program. Once a company has enrolled in managed care, their injured employees must treat with a provider in the managed care network.
