Workers'
Compensation

Programs that result in savings every step of the way.

Medlogix® workers’ compensation programs offer employers an integrated proactive approach to effectively managing work-related injuries and help control escalating medical and indemnity costs. We serve as your medical claims management managed care and PPO partner, guiding each case to optimal MMI and RTW outcomes. From the time of injury through the end of the treatment path, the Medlogix® case manager ensures the injured worker receives timely and medically necessary treatment 24/7 and 365 days per year.

Our Workers’ Compensation services are powered by our proprietary, web-based case management and bill review software, featuring a customizable, user-friendly platform and real-time access to the ongoing management of a claim. Progress may be tracked on nurse medical case management, case status, provider billing and RTW status. Automatic alerts are issued for a change in work status, compensability and more. Users receive individual secure logins so adjusters and case managers have access to all file activity in real-time.
