EK Health adds liability review to managed care services

IBR Staff Writer Published 05 March 2013

National workers’ compensation managed care company EK Health Services has introduced liability review services to its line of managed care services.

The liability reviews will help payers in settlement discussions and negotiations by examining and interpreting medical records associated with general liability and auto liability claims, thus reducing claim costs.

Conducted by EK Health Liability Nurse Specialists using clinical guidelines and proprietary technology, the reviews will scour claims reports and identify any medical treatment that is inapplicable to the file.

Focusing on medical appropriateness and treatment protocol, EK Health liability reviews help employers, insurers, third party administrators and other payers to avoid unnecessary medical treatment payment.

EK Health also provides physician peer review services for medical treatment evaluation associated to appropriate liability claim settlement.
