FAIR Health Engages with Workers’ Compensation Community

FAIR Health recently engaged with the workers’ compensation community at two key events: the Southern Association of Workers’ Compensation Administrators (SAWCA) All Committee Conference, held November 14-17, 2017 in Hilton Head, South Carolina; and the National Workers’ Compensation and Disability Conference & Expo (NWCDC), held December 6-8, 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Attendance at the two conferences provided FAIR Health the opportunity to have conversations with commissioners, legislators and regulatory representatives (SAWCA), as well as carriers, third-party administrators and organizations providing services to the workers’ compensation and disability market (NWCDC). FAIR Health learned more about the most pressing issues in workers’ compensation, including telehealth, air ambulances, value-based payment models, opioid abuse and dispute resolution.

Our team met with many existing clients and shared the ways in which we can assist new clients, ranging from fee schedule development to providing data that organizations may use in order to understand usual and customary rates in local areas when a service is not covered in a state’s fee schedule. In workers’ compensation arrangements, FAIR Health has provided services to state agencies working with external data sources as well as our own robust database to update workers’ compensation fee schedules. As an independent and neutral data source, FAIR Health has had its data referenced in statutes and regulations around the country and has been designated as the official data source for a variety of state health programs in addition to workers’ compensation.
