Among COVID-19 and delayed surgeries, reductions in Medicare/Medicaid reimbursement, rising unemployment and other economic pressures, hospitals are having a tough time financially. And, facilities are looking to workers’ comp to help make up the revenue. Employers in most states are paying 3 to 8 times Medicare’s cost for facility fees.
Joe Paduda will discuss the effect of these external cost drivers on workers’ compensation and ways self-insured employers can mitigate them in a one-hour webinar for the California Self-Insurers Association. The webinar starts at 10:30 a.m. Pacific/1:30 Eastern on November 17.
The webinar is free to CSIA members and available for $25 to non-members. Register here.
