#Our e-newsletter for Enterprise Risk Management, Claim Settlement and Healthcare Solutions.


Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) 

Earlier this year we described an analysis of our databases of Total Cost of Risk (TCOR) metrics for Middle Market (defined as organizations having revenues $10 Million to $1 Billion) and Large ($1 Billion+) organizations to determine if there is similar risk cost segmentation occurring at each level of grouping. Since then, we’ve expanded our understanding about the critical dynamics of Casualty (Liability, Workers’ Compensation, etc.) insurance programs. For the key drivers of TCOR for Casualty insurance and self-insurance, please click here >>

Claim Settlement, Medicare, and Medicare Set Asides

During the past few months, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) have provided updates to its Benefits, Medicare Set Asides (MSAs) and MMSEA Section 111 User Manual. Learn more about the most recent information, and how it affects you and your risk and claim management efforts.  For links to key Medicare Handbook information and Medicare Secondary Payer reporting requirements, please click here >>


Recent studies of our extensive databases have revealed that the most serious cases with underlying chronic medical conditions can have a large effect on the outcomes of your medical cost projections. The early analysis and careful management of these issues could reduce your damages by 40-60%. For more about how different types of discussions affect the outcome of cases, please click here >>
