The Optum workers’ compensation and auto no-fault division works to collaborate with our clients to deliver value beyond transactional savings while helping ensure injured parties receive safe and effective clinical care throughout the life of their claim. Our innovative and comprehensive cost management programs include pharmacy care services, ancillary benefit management, medical services, and settlement solutions.
While auto and workers’ comp insurers see many of the same kinds of claims, handling auto claims takes a specialized knowledge base to reach the best outcomes for payers and patients.
The Optum physical medicine platform is geared up to work in tandem with pharmacy benefit management to help injured workers control and overcome pain and get back to their lives.
Frequent mergers create a confusing experience for workers’ comp carriers and claimants. By rolling all of its services into a single platform, Optum is proving the IT investment can pay off.
Caring for injured workers should involve more than just processing transactions. Applying a clinical approach from the onset of an injury ensures more appropriate care and better outcomes.
