When considering the overwhelming number of #Texans who have contracted this disease and the burgeoning body of medical evidence outlining what this disease process can do to the human body, it is paramount that every avenue be explored that would exclude this as compensable.

The aging workforce is increasing, studies show. Though older workers pose a lower chance of work place injury, age can bring an increased chance of unrelated comorbidities. A careful review of clinical records can be key to limiting the claim to the actual injury sustained.

Early Compensability Assessment—C3′s licensed and board certified physicians thoughtfully assess mechanisms of injury and provide you with an early evaluation of what is and what does not appear to be compensable.

Physician Peer Review (including non-subscriber and liability)—Board-certified specialists answer specific questions related to utilization of care and claimant treatment plans, compensability and extent of injury issues through comprehensive medical evidence-based assessments of claimant medical records.

Diagnostic Re-Read—Our board certified and licensed physicians will provide a re-read of a previous diagnostic assessment. A second opinion may be necessary in some circumstances and our physicians will provide an honest and accurate evaluation.

Impairment Rating Review—Impairment rating reviews ensure that your claimant’s impairment rating meets the standard of the specific guidelines insured specific to the applicable jurisdiction, the statute, and appeals panel decisions.

Claims File Analysis—A CFA report provides a comprehensive medical record review; listing all disputes (per PLN-11), a full medical time line, return to work history (per DWC 73), previous DDE’s and RME’s, and a list of references including the ODG, MDA and Impairment guidelines.

32 Processing with Summary—C3’s professional staff complete the DWC32 and submit the completed form to the adjuster for approval prior to submitting to DWC. We sort and summarize the medical records with special attention and detail related to the questions posed to the Designated Doctor. We ensure records and summary are provided to the Designated Doctor in compliance with DWC rules and regulations. Following the date of the exam, our staff will call the DD’s office, confirm attendance and provide the adjuster status updates during the entire process. If the adjuster is required to submit a 32 form, we can still complete a Claims File Analysis and handle the claim previously discussed.

Cumulative Impact—A summary of a previously compensable injury’s Impairment Rating and the current Impairment Rating as it relates to seeking contribution.
