The employee files a workers’ compensation claim and, assuming they prove their case, we pay medical and/or indemnity. Seems straightforward enough. Recently, however, demands for various types of “reimbursement” under workers’ compensation policies have been increasing. Providers are suing employers/carriers in civil court as assignee of the claimant. No-fault insurers are demanding reimbursement of amounts they believe the workers’ compensation carrier should have paid. Health insurers are serving non-HIMP compliant reimbursement demands.
In this episode, “The Concept of “Extra-Comp” Exposure and How to Fight It,” Christopher Major, partner at Lois Law Firm, dives into how we can avoid significant “back-end” exposure for workers’ compensation benefits outside of the workers’ compensation claim itself.
