Nurse Case Managers-Workers Comp Nurse Case Managers are an amazing key to bridge the gap between the injured worker, adjusters, employers, physical therapists, attorneys and treating physicians. As a prior adjuster, I know the claims that truly needed a nurse case manager to be assigned, would have a better outcome. Not every claim needs one, but for certain injuries, you can't afford not to have one.
I want to challenge all the case managers here to take a look at your case load and see if any of your cases have claimants that are suffering from obesity. Is their BMI or uncontrolled diabetes keeping them from qualifying for a needed surgery? Are they having a more difficult time in recovery post surgery? Are they having trouble being able to return to work? I would love to talk to you about an amazing program that can assist your injured workers. I can assure you it's worth having a conversation about.
