WHAT: The Politics of Workers' Compensation

State legislators throughout the country are continually challenged with providing cost-effective care for injured workers while creating a business-friendly environment. Issues such as how to control prescription drug abuse and misuse, physician dispensing, compounded medications, and closed formularies add to the challenge. The trend to legalize marijuana is also creating legislative and regulatory issues throughout the United States. This presentation will discuss these and other pertinent legislative and regulatory issues affecting workers’ compensation. Participants will learn about current and pending legislation and various special interest influences that impact the development of laws and rules affecting the workers’ compensation system. This insight will demonstrate what the various changes mean for the industry and how industry stakeholders can affect political change to their advantage.
