Workers' Compensation Update

December 19, 2017

Effective January 1, 2018, the Division of Human Resources will partner with CompEndium Services, Inc. to provide medical case management services for our employees who are injured at work. This means that injured employees and their supervisors can expect faster claims processing and referrals to medical treatment. CompEnduim Services is a telephonic medical management company that is able to review reports 24 hours a day/7 days a week.

CompEndium has been working with state agencies and education services for over 15 years and provides a proactive work injury management process to the workforce. This process is one that allows all injuries to be reported and guided by a medical specialist through each step of treatment. Each injured employee will have an assigned medical manager to assist with any questions they may have, scheduling of medical treatment appointments and informing all parties involved about the direction of care. We feel this new service will provide a more timely process for our employees to recover from the unknown effects associated with a work injury.

Please see attached poster for the procedures. Please post this in your work areas.
