The ACA is in place and causing massive changes to the provider and payer landscape. One question broached by WCRi in recently-published research deals with the possibility of “case shifting” from group health to work comp.
That is, do primary care providers selectively “allocate” cases to work comp based on reimbursement motivations?
If yes, there are obvious and significant ramifications for all of us, many of which will have negative consequences for employers and insurers.
But, in my view, the picture is anything but clear – on many levels.
WCRI’s hosting a webinar this Thursday at 2 pm EST on the topic. They have been kind enough to invite me to present a contrasting perspective. There are already over 100 registrants, so the good folk from WCRi have opened up registration to accommodate the demand.
Sign up here.
Webinars are $39 for WCRI members; $79 for non-members; and no charge for members of the press, legislators as well as their staff, and state public officials who make policy decisions impacting their state’s workers’ compensation system.
See you there.
