Impact of ACA on Workers’ Comp

Mark Walls, another of my LinkedIn connections has written a very good piece today on Insurance Thought Without commenting any further on what Mark said, and to bolster the point I made in my last post, Affordable Care Act to Lead to Physician Shortages ― What it Could Mean for Medical Tourism in Work Comp, here is the link to Mark’s article. Pay close attention to the Access to Care section.

    Hi Richard,

    Do you have any immediate thoughts on the initial steps a worker’s comp carrier can implement a medical tourism benefit withini their program?

    What do you think the pitfalls might be? For the carrier, for the employer?

    Other benefits besides near immediate access to care and cost savings?

    Look forward to your thoughts.

    Many thanks,
    Benjamin Simons
