There is a point within the Thanksgiving dinner when you know you have had too much.
Hello, my name is Michael stack and I’m the CEO of Amaxx and Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. This Thanksgiving week as we celebrate this great holiday where we come together as a family, give thanks and also have a really great meal. But there is that point when you say, hey, I have had too much Turkey, too much stuffing, too much mashed potatoes and gravy, and your body gives you that very clear indicator that that’s enough and you need to do something else, some other course of action needs to happen.
Need to Have Clear Indicator to Start Settlement Process
Similar in workers’ compensation, we need to have these very clear indicators when we’re talking about settling a case. That’s the context of today’s training, settling a case. What does that clear indicator that we need to start thinking about it? So where’s that clear indicator we need to start thinking about, okay, boom, that’s enough Turkey. Okay, boom. That’s the indicator that my case is ready to be thought about going on this path towards settlement. And how many put some of those wheels in motion?
So I want to talk with you today about those very clear indicators of what they are so that you can start and have that very clear indication, that very clear trigger that now we need to start thinking about settling this case and the first one that I want to give you is that the individual is consistent and stable, so consistent and stable and this is in their medical treatment and in their prescriptions; and their pharmacy and how that treatment, that course of treatment is going. So, if there’s a surgery coming up or they just recovered from a surgery, not a great time to start thinking about settling. They’re still within this process. They’re still within what we have guaranteed in the work comp industry that we’re going to take care of these people to get them to this phase, to get them consistent, get them stable in their medical and in their pharmacy.
Consistent and Stable in Medical and Pharmacy
Indicator number one is that they’re consistent and stable and that is that same thing when you say, whew, that’s enough Turkey, that’s enough stuffing. It’s very clear for you. This should be very clear for your work comp cases as well that they’re consistent and they are stable within this bucket. I’m not even going to give you any more because I want to have this be such a very clear indication. This is also the time to start thinking about your Medicare Set Aside as well. Your MSA. This is the time when to reach out to your MSA vendor, have them start getting engaged in this process as well, and then as you start moving along this further process of settlement, you’re engaging your settlement advisors, you’re engaging your post settlement administrator, your professional administrator within this process.
There’s a lot more to this, this early identifier is just the tip of the iceberg in this four-step process to settlement, and I want to encourage you to check out this full-length training.
Successfully Settle More Cases
It’s very valuable to really get this consistent process cooking along called the process to successfully sell more cases. You’ll see a link below to order to check out that course. It’s a tremendous course dialing into this. This is the first step indicator that they’re consistent and that they’re stable. If you can have that clear indicator, then start the recipe and start that roadmap towards settlement.
You will drive more successful win-win outcomes for your work comp cases. My name is Michael Stack and I’m the CEO of AMAXX. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. I hope you enjoy a great holiday this week!
