How Having Clarity Over Ancillary Benefits Data Improves Claims and Outcomes for Injured Workers

Using data to ensure that ancillary benefit programs result in optimal recovery for injured workers comes down to having a clear dashboard of meaningful metrics.

White Paper Summary

Ancillary benefit programs may be just one piece of the workers’ compensation puzzle, but they can have significant cost and duration implications if not managed well.

Lara Heal, senior director of managed care for MEMIC, a private mutual workers’ compensation insurance company, knows the value of having a solid dashboard tool.

“Having transparency into our total program so that we can understand where our physical therapy and radiology spend is going is one piece of it,” Heal said. “But the quality of care and the outcome that injured worker receives is equally, if not more, important. At MEMIC, our ultimate goal is for our injured worker to get back to work and back to a productive lifestyle. That’s all part of our mission to make workers’ comp better – for everyone.”

As MEMIC’s medical cost containment partner, CorVel prioritizes helping Heal’s team pinpoint meaningful data that can be used by everyone from the claims handler to the executive. With modular analysis capability, CorVel’s dashboard is designed to help senior leaders like Heal save valuable time and customize views so that each level of her organization can understand what story the claims data is telling.
