Deconstructing Comp Pod!

Friends and colleagues Yvonne Guibert and Rafael Gonzalez went waaaay out on a limb and asked me to do another podcast.

I was all over the place, but Yvonne and Rafe were kind enough – and smart enough to rein me in when I diverged away from what was supposed to be the focus – impact of economics and the upcoming election on workers’ comp.

A deep dive into the economy started things off – how the House of Representatives affects physician reimbursement – and how that affects workers’ comp.

and how Medicaid dis-enrollment affects workers’ comp.

and how wage increases have outpaced inflation.

Listen on!

  1. Joe, it says something about you that you’re the first guest to be featured in two full length episodes of this fabulous podcast. I learned a lot and really enjoyed your conversation with Yvonne and Rafael and I encourage everyone with any interest in our industry to give it a listen.
