WCI 2023 Sneak Peek: National Workers’ Compensation Review, Lessons Learned, and Multi-State Breakouts

Workers’ compensation issues and subjects regularly go beyond individual state jurisdictions. WCI has recognized the importance to have sessions with a national or multi-jurisdictional focus. The National Workers’ Compensation Review, Lessons Learned, and Multi-State Workers’ Compensation Laws Breakouts allow our attendees to broaden their worker’s compensation horizons. Below are some of the sessions and topics that will be covered during these breakouts.

National Workers’ Compensation Review Breakout Sessions:

  • Evidence-based Treatment Guidelines, Formularies, and Fee Schedules
  • Outlier Prescription Drug Costs
  • Panel Discussion moderated by Bob Wilson with the Winners of the National Underwriter Property and Casualty Workers’ Compensation Risk Management Award for Excellence
  • Join Patti Harman, editor-in-chief of the PC360 Group, and Michelle Despres, V.P. with One-Call as they discuss Michele’s journey after she sustained a serious worker’s compensation injury
  • National Case Law Highlights (legal experts will share their insight on key cases from around the country)
  • Women Ceiling Breakers and Industry Trail Blazers Workshop: Fostering Resilience at Work Together
  • AMA Guides: Issues and Controversies

“At the intersection of claims, medicine, law and industry, the National Workers’ Compensation Review speakers are the cream of the crop, often in the upper-most positions within state and national comp programs. Our sessions are not a series of lectures, but practical courses of information and strategies that attendees can leverage when they return to their offices on Monday morning regardless of the jurisdiction where they are conducting business.” – George Kagan, Breakout Organizer

These legal experts will go on a journey to discuss and describe the most relevant litigation, case law, and statutory issues impacting how you handle claims in these states.” – Regan Ankney Cobb, Breakout Organizer
