Texas Pharmacy Formulary Webinar Looks at New Rules

 
Texas often leads the nation in workers compensation cost containment and narcotics legislation. The state recently continued their history of reform by adopting a new pharmaceutical formulary that will reduce the amount of money spent on workers compensation medications and improve the overall health of the state's employees. How does it work? What can you do to remain in compliance?
 
 
Broadspire is conducting a webinar to provide answers about the new Texas formulary  August 23. Speaking on compliance issues was formulary co-creator Ralph Kendall, PharmD., vice president of clinical services at Healthesystems. 
 
 
Also Jacob Lazarovic, MD, chief medical officer at Broadspire, will discuss the clinical implications of the formulary and Lynn Sergeant, RN, team manager of utilization management at Broadspire, will be discussing how Broadspire is operationally responding to the formulary.

This week at Workers Compensation Roundtable we surpassed 2,000 members! Read more about it    here. Bob Wilson, congenial host of the group writes, “Two of the reasons for this group’s success are the high quality of it's membership, and the success of specialized subgroups to help manage the flow of information. We appreciate your interest and support, and hope you continue to participate while we "march on" to top the 3,000 member level and beyond.”
 
 
On the discussion Which States are considered the worst from an Underwriting/Insurance Carrier standpoint?, John Daniels, CIC, says he gets feedback on a consistent basis that California, New York and Illinois are the most challenging states. (WCxKit)
 
 
On this discussion, read comments such as Steven Dlott, who says, “While I am happy not to lay claim to first place in this contest, Ohio also does not allow the employer any opportunity to manage or direct medical treatment. Let's just say chiropractors do very well in Ohio.”
 
 
Read more to find out why member Christopher Brigham thinks the most “dysfunctional” states are California and New York.
 

 
 
Rosemary posted a discussion titled Canadian Government continues to support the export of asbestos to developing countries here and sites this article. She writes, “This concerns me greatly as it should concern all of us. Anyone who knows anything about asbestos needs to be speaking up to protect the people in third-world countries.”
 
 
Join us at Linkedin's Workers Compensation Roundtable right now and right here! Better yet, invite your friends so they too can become informed on hot topics in the Workers Compensation industry. (WCxKit)
 
Workers Compensation Roundtable is jointly managed by people dedicated to the concept that workers compensation is a manageable line on your expense ledger, and that informed professionals are empowered achievers. Workers' compensation is not simply a cost of doing business, it is a cost that can be controlled. Beginning with an assessment of cost drivers, benchmarking data, and integrating the solutions, employers can reduce workers' comp costs 20 to 50 percent. With proper information, professionals managing compensation claims can reduce costs and improve outcomes for all stakeholders in the process. This group is for employers, business owners, risk managers, HR managers, insurance executives, and brokers to discuss the obstacles and strategies to overcome them.
