Quick Overview

What makes for a compensable workers' compensation claim? This question has become exceedingly important in light of the continuing COVID-19 pandemic. Is it possible that someone might have a compensable COVID-19 related workers' compensation claim? This class will help you explain to your clients why injuries or illnesses that do not seem work-related may be accepted for payment.

This is the question that Nancy Germond wants to help us answer. Join us for this important and timely session on the effect that COVID-19 is going to have on certain workers' compensation claims today and in the future.

What goes into the determination of a "compensable" workers' compensation claim? This course will review the compensability investigation necessary to determine whether a carrier will pay for or deny a workers compensation claim. This investigation has become even more complex in light of COVID-19 concerns, so we'll cover the investigation of COVID illness compensability in workers' compensation claims.

At the end of this session, you should be able to:

  • Evaluate what goes into a compensability investigation in workers' compensation.
  • Differentiate between a claim that is compensable and one that is not.
  • Understand that a workers compensation claim that is denied may still be found compensable when an administrative law process becomes involved
  • Analyze the COVID-19 investigation and compensability decision.
