Time to First Medical Service – WCRI Webinar – Posted Almost Live


WCRI – Time To First Medical Service Webinar

I decided to cover this one live.  This is one of my Keys to Workers’ Comp Savings – with a twist.  Workers ‘ medical networks for expedient treatment (emergency and non-emergy) remain one of the best ways to control Workers Comp costs. The WCRI webinar covered Time To First Medical Service very well,  Nice Job.

Please excuse any typos as I am publishing this info live and uploading it to the newsletter feed immediately for the newsletter readers.

See the article here that I wrote in late 2020 on injury treatment and the need for speed.

Emergency services – the same day of the accident

First Office Visit – within two days of injury

This was one of the most informative webinars by WCRI, as all of them have been for a long time.  I recommend purchasing here unless you are a WCRI member and then it is freebies.
