Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) September 12, 2013
Healthcare Solutions, the parent company of Cypress Care, ScripNet and Procura Management, today announced its wholly owned subsidiary, Procura Management, Inc. (Procura), has been approved as a Workers’ Compensation Preferred Provider Program (WC PPP) Administrator by the Illinois Department of Insurance.
Under the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Act (820 ILCS 305/8(a) and 8.1a), employers can direct medical treatment for their injured employees by using a Workers’ Compensation Preferred Provider Program approved by the Department of Insurance. Utilizing a WC PPP helps to improve medical care for injured employees by providing a single extensive network of credentialed medical providers and helps to decrease medical costs for employers. By using Procura’s WC PPP, which became effective on August 15, 2013, employers can eliminate non-network care, obtain services at contracted rates and deny of out-of-network providers/services. Because the company maintains networks of all types of providers – physicians, specialty services (imaging, physical therapy, DME and home health) and pharmacies – it is uniquely positioned to provide the comprehensive networks required of WC PPPs under Illinois law.
“Healthcare Solutions monitors the workers’ compensation regulatory landscape and applies for certifications where applicable,” said Nicole D’Ettorre, senior vice president of PPO network services for Healthcare Solutions. “We are very pleased to be a Workers’ Compensation Preferred Provider Program Administrator in Illinois. Our PPO and managed care network programs help to ensure injured employees receive immediate access to qualified providers and help employers to realize maximum penetration rates and savings.”
Healthcare Solutions’ workers’ compensation PPO network is comprised of many of the nation’s largest and most reputable networks resulting in greater network penetration at preferred rates and improved outcomes for injured employees and customers. For over 25 years, Healthcare Solutions has provided customized medical management solutions that specifically address the unique needs of the workers’ compensation market.
