    This session examines claims strategies to meet this triple-headed threat to help you stay compliant and minimize risk.

    Self-insurers are currently facing a Medicare triple threat involving recovery claims.  Under CMS's Commercial Payment Center (CRC) recovery policy, Medicare is pursuing conditional payment recovery against insurers before claim settlement in certain cases. From another angle, the U.S. Treasury Department has ramped up its recovery efforts, including the dreaded Treasury offset program. Lastly, Medicare Advantage Plans (MAPs) are aggressively pursuing insurers for reimbursement, including several Ohio cases where the courts have allowed MAPs to sue lawsuits for "double damages." This session examines claims strategies to meet this triple-headed threat to help you stay compliant and minimize risk.

    This course provides a thorough understanding of just how much information is created every day on social media. This course aims to raise awareness of the many different avenues for how that information can be used to craft a reliable investigation plan and build the foundation for a high-quality evidence package sure to aid in the defense of a claim.

    This course provides a thorough understanding of just how much information is created every day on social media. Upon completion of this course, attendees should be aware of what potentially relevant information might exist for any claim. Furthermore, this course aims to raise awareness of the many different avenues for how that information can be used to craft a reliable investigation plan and build the foundation for a high-quality evidence package sure to aid in the defense of a claim.

    The world has changed so much in the last decade with the advent and subsequent explosion of social media use. Its’ addictive nature has complicated the lives of many people and has likely forever changed the way many businesses operate. Nearly everyone walks around with a connected device with an HD camera in their hands. Most participate daily in multiple social media experiences and the normalization of sharing our lives most intimate moments is nearly complete. This societal shift has certainly impacted multiple aspects of the claims industry with the simplification of effort needed to begin a claims investigation being especially notable.

    Adjusters, claim leaders and risk managers should feel confident in using social media to better know a claimant’s story and lifestyle. That confidence only comes with a greater understanding of what potential information can be found on the internet about most any person. There are 100’s of social media sites, millions of profiles and billions of regularly posted statements, pictures and videos. You might be surprised just how often a claimant posts something that impeaches the credibility of their injury story. Learning how a claims professional can use this information to directly impact claims with some indicator of fraud and abuse is vital.

    Day 2, Session 5 of the 2021 OSIA Virtual Annual Conference

    “There is nothing more horrifying than stupidity in action."

    This quote, attributed to Adlai Stevenson, is particularly true when an employer must pay for it.  As a no fault system, Workers’ Compensation compensates claimants despite their own negligence and outright stupidity. In this session, we will look at various fact situations where ridiculous behavior was compensable, and perhaps find a scenario where a claimant’s actions were so outrageous as to provide a defense.

    Randall W. Mikes is an attorney with Kegler Brown Hill + Ritter, practicing in the areas of workers’ compensation and litigation. With 30 years of workers’ compensation experience, Randy represents Ohio employers at administrative hearings before the Industrial Commission and before the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation, and defends them in matters in Ohio’s courts of common pleas, courts of appeal, and Supreme Court.
