Claims closures, reporting efficiencies & medical savings net sustainable workers' comp program improvements
The Schoharie Area WC Plan is a self-insured trust of 12 schools and one Board of Cooperative Educational Services located throughout Schoharie, Albany, and Schenectady Counties. Along with its longtime risk management consultant, KBM Management, the trust recently partnered with PMA for workers' comp TPA and risk services. Together, the teams deployed best practices to streamline claims reporting, instituted in-depth medical bill reviews, and substantially reduced outstanding claims reserves. Next steps include focusing on risk control initiatives that can prevent injuries and ensure safer, healthier work environments for employees.
