New York, NY (PRWEB) July 13, 2017
Priority Care Solutions (PCS) and MultiPlan, Inc. announced today that PCS will provide their clients access to the MultiPlan Workers’ Compensation Network, which boasts 2,200 participating hospitals, 106,000 ancillary facilities and 490,000 directly contracted practitioners nationwide.
PCS, which is a leading specialty managed care services and network provider for the Workers’ Compensation Industry, is committed to helping injured workers receive the care they need to recover while controlling costs. They are partnering with MultiPlan to offer access to providers in specialties and geographic locations that their network does not cover.
“Partnering with MultiPlan broadens our network penetration and significantly expands our network footprint. It allows us to give injured workers, even those located in remote rural locations, access to the quality care they need to recover and return to work,” said Bob Smith, CEO of PCS. “Our relationship also allows us to staff cases quicker and reduce our clients’ out-of-network spend.”
By offering access to MultiPlan’s network, PCS gives its clients more providers to choose from. The additional provider choice helps to reduce wait times for appointments, which ultimately lets the client resolve claims faster and puts the injured employee on the road to recovery sooner.
Kelly Basel, Vice President Sales and Account Management at MultiPlan, said, “We’re excited that PCS will be using our network to help injured workers receive the care they need to return to the job.”
