ACHIEVING SUCCESS TIPS
Working with your Adjusters or TPA

This week we discuss in a lighthearted way how not to annoy an adjuster. Here are ways to stay in good favor with the adjuster as well as stay on top of claims in your workers compensation management program

  • Keep them in the loop about the employee's activity in your facility. 
  • Advise the adjuster if the employee has returned to work in transitional duty or full duty.
  • Let them know if you think the claim is fraudulent or the employee is malingering.
  • Tell them if the employee is not cooperative such as not attending required Weekly Meetings.
  • Say "thank you" to the adjuster!

 

If you are a workers comp manager, broker, agent, association manager, consider our NEW  2012 Workers Compensation Managment Guidebook as a resource to implement and design a workers compensation management program?
