Building Off of a Pharmacy Program
to Structure a Strong Settlement

To finish with a strong settlement to a workers’ compensation claim, you must first start with an equally strong pharmacy program. Join us as our panel of experts describe how pharmacy program tools such as clinical reviews, provider outreach, predictive analytics, medication plans, point-of-sale edits, drug testing and more are the perfect springboard to set a claim up for settlement and appropriate allocations amounts for CMS submission. Join us as Optum partners with ESIS to describe how pharmacy and settlement programs are working together for the greatest outcomes and settlement success.
