CASI continues to maintain an ongoing, robust dialogue in relation to the role of Utilization Review and the use of Medical Provider Networks. As evidenced many times over in recent news and case law, medical treatment guidelines and physician choice must at times be correlated with the clinical and personal picture of the injured worker. Medical control requires the associates have a mutually agreed plan with physicians who recognize the value of this shared interaction. Injured workers and employers bring unique circumstances to an injury, and all who are involved must recognize these circumstances to secure advantageous results. The cliché, “an ounce of prevention is worth more than a pound of cure,” has substantial relevance in the current paradigm of workers’ compensation medical treatment plans and diagnostic processes. CASI, through experience and best claims practices, recognizes where an ounce of prevention should be tactfully applied.
