Benefits of Membership

The Academy is comprised of members who know, like and want more Workers’ Compensation business. We provide training and a forum for those who want to increase their knowledge of Workers’ Compensation and a means to network with like-minded professionals. The Academy allows physicians to identify, establish and/or maintain relationships with the key people in the Workers’ Compensation industry. It is the Academy’s belief that professionals like to network and do business with other best-in-class professionals.

The Academy’s physicians provide the highest quality of care to injured workers.

How Does the Academy Help?

We interface with the five major sources of Workers’ Compensation referrals:

  • Insurance Industry
  • Fortune 500 (Large Self-Insured Companies)
  • Third Party Administrators (TPAs)
  • Managed Care and Case Management Companies
  • Government, Governmental Agencies and School Boards

We work closely with the key people within each of these groups in order to reinforce your name as a Compensation physician. Further, we strive to provide positive/negative feedback from providers and try to resolve any problems or miscommunications that arise.

This should help you to maintain and increase your Workers’ Compensation revenue as a result of additional referrals from the Workers’ Compensation marketplace.
