Monitoring Compounds in Workers’ Compensation
“As prescriptions for compounded drugs become more frequent, safety and necessity must be considered in order to effectively regulate their usage for workers’ compensation programs,” according to Rhonda Moran, Vice President, CorVel Corporation. Prospective management ensures all stakeholders are aware that a compound has been prescribed, and that proper documentation has been received indicating the compound is medically necessary considering patient safety, while also minding payors’ out-of-pocket costs. Remembering the end goal of providing safe, effective treatment to injured workers, compounds must be regulated out of interest of the patient and their employer.
