Plan a Vendor Day

Consider planning a "Vendor Day" and invite your insurer to attend. You not only develop a better relationship with your vendors and insurer, but Vendor Day is a great way to learn more about workers compensation cost control techniques. 


Some services are owned by your insurer/TPA, while others are affiliated with them. What's on the Vendor Day Agenda? Have the insurer explain the benefits of each service, how to request a service, when each service is routinely provided, and the cost of each.  And do not forget this is a great time to request product samples! 


Ask your insurance company to invite service-providers they use, participants in workers compensation initiatives, such as RTW, utilization review, and medical and legal services.


Your broker can set up a Vendor Day for you or a less formal one on one approach.  Services your TPA/Insurer can provide include

  • Structured Settlements
  • Legal Services
  • Preferred Provider Networks
  • Vocational Rehabilitation
  • Medical-Bill Review Services
  • Work Hardening
  • Hospital-Bill Review Services
