Services

The first line of savings is the prevention of injuries in the work environment. Employer’s Claim Management, Inc. (ECMI), a service provider to THE FUND members, works to encourage and enhance a member’s safety efforts through its Technical Resource Department.  On-site risk visits are conducted at a member’s request and as determined by risk and experience analysis.

ECMI provides a staff of 50 to assist in managing a claim to a successful conclusion. Each claim is assigned to an experienced claim examiner who works closely with the injured worker, the medical care provider, and the employer to bring about a favorable resolution. A case management team with registered nurses is active in managing severe injuries.

Participation in AlaMed, the state’s largest and most cost effective worker’s compensation preferred provider organization (PPO), helps to control medical costs. State of the art claim management software processes claims promptly and automatically pays the lower of billed charges, PPO schedule, or state fee schedule.

CompInfoCenter provides members with access to information on their workers’ compensation claims and other account information. Members have the option to receive custom reports based on their particular needs when a detailed claim analysis is desired.

Web seminars are also available through the CompInfoCenter allowing members to receive important training for successfully managing their workers’ compensation program.
