New Guide to Medical Treatment After Settlement

Posted on December 13, 2019 by Tower MSA

The Tennessee Bureau of Worker’ Compensation recently published the “30-Minute Guide to Medical Treatment after Settlement.”  Tower’s Chief Compliance Officer Dan Anders was a significant contributor to the guide, along with Ametros’ Dorothy Holland and Humana’s Brian Bargender, CRSP. 

An educational resource for the state’s injured workers who are deciding whether to settle the medical portion of workers’ compensation claims, the guide covers: 

  • Lifetime medical benefits vs. closed medical benefits
  • How future medical costs are calculated
  • Settlement negotiations
  • Workers’ Compensation Medicare Set-Asides (WCMSAs)
  • Self-Administration vs. Professional Administration of post-settlement medical funds

Designed to help injured workers better understand open lifetime medical benefits and the consequences of closing their workers’ compensation claims, the guide helps injured workers carefully consider their options and make informed decisions. The 19-page PDF is available at https://www.tn.gov/content/dam/tn/workforce/documents/injuries/30MinuteGuidetoMedicalTreatmentafterSettlement.pdf
