If a claim is designated as catastrophic by the GA State Board of Workers Compensation, a certified rehabilitation nurse is assigned. Core has developed outstanding relationships with many rehab nurses and/or providers throughout the state. Our Account Managers will maintain contact with the rehab nurse in regards to the claim’s status and will review reports provided (updated reports may be requested as needed).
In some cases, catastrophic claims do not have a lot of medical activity; therefore, our Account Managers follow the claim and ensure that the claimant is following up with the ATP on a routine basis in order to stay up to date with their condition. If there is an opportunity for light duty, we work with the client to have the catastrophic designation removed. Please note that if a State Board Rehab Nurse is utilized, a separate fee is charged by the Rehab Supplier per claim file. No fees or commissions will be paid to Core for the utilization of a GA State Certified Rehab Nurse.
Stop loss coverage is placed with no commissions and at no additional fee.
