When Member employees are injured on the job, we’re there every step of the way to help them get the care they need.
Superb quality and cost-effective medical care
The Fund belongs to a medical provider network with four other risk pools. The Political Subdivision Workers’ Compensation Alliance helps employees receive timely medical care from qualified health care providers.
The Alliance helps employees return to work 72 percent quicker after injury and medical costs 24 percent less per claim, compared to non-network.
The Fund saves costs on medications and reduces the unnecessary use of opioids with pharmacy benefits from OptumRX.
Injured employees can receive medical care without traveling at no extra cost. Fund members can set up telemedicine for Workers' Compensation with Concentra or RediMD.
Expert claims service
When member employees suffer an injury at work, dedicated case managers help get them to a medical professional quickly. They become an integral part of the recovery process by staying in touch with the injured employee and a team of medical professionals.
An in-house team of licensed review agents, registered nurses, and a board-certified physician review cases to ensure proper treatment.
Employee training and resources
