San Diego and Austin, Texas (PRWEB) November 18, 2013
Millennium Laboratories, a leader in the science of toxicology and pharmacogenetics, today announced a test services agreement with Texas Mutual Insurance Company, the leading provider of workers’ compensation insurance in Texas. Millennium Laboratories is now in network with Texas Mutual and will be providing workers’ compensation recipients with its extensive list of medication monitoring and drug detection services.
“Texas Mutual’s priority is to ensure injured workers receive quality care and return to productive employment,” said Kim Haugaard, vice president of network and medical operations at Texas Mutual. “Our partnership with Millennium Laboratories gives us, and network medical providers another tool for offering personalized care.”
While opioid therapy represents a necessary component in pain management, potential misuse by workers is a major concern for employers, creating unique challenges for payers in this market. As a preferred provider for Texas Mutual, Millennium will provide medication monitoring and drug detection services to practitioners to evaluate patients’ use of prescribed medications and substances. With this objective clinical tool health care providers may be able to safely and effectively monitor and manage their patients’ medication therapy, helping them get back to work and resume productive, quality lives.
“Our superior medication monitoring and drug detection testing services will enable a better understanding of medications and drugs a patient may or may not be taking, reveal potential drug to drug interactions, and create opportunity for dialogue between physician and patient regarding the treatment plan,” said Millennium Laboratories’ Vice President, Managed Markets and Workers’ Comp, Brent Gibbs. “We are proud to partner with Texas Mutual Insurance to provide better diagnostic tools for their providers and patients.”
