Hosted by the Workers’ Compensation Section on Oct. 14, the program covered the basics of utilization reviews, medical fee reviews and how best lawyers can help claimants in a workers’ compensation situation. Utilization Review is usually used by insurance companies in workers’ compensation cases. However, the claimant can also obtain pre-approval for treatment with the review.
