Everest Insurance, a division of Bermuda-based reinsurer Everest Re, has announced two new medical management solutions for workers’ compensation policyholders.
Everest joined together with Company Nurse to offer the Everest Nurse Triage program, which gives injured employees immediate access to licensed RNs who specialise in workplace injuries.
The program aims to streamline the First Report of Injury process, reducing claim reporting lag time, and advises employees of necessary self-care or additional medical care.
Everest Telemed, a collaboration between Everest Insurance and Concentra, is available in conjunction with the Everest Nurse Triage Program.
It is a telemedicine product designed to provide prompt attention for minor medical issues, utilising digital communication to facilitate quick access to a licensed clinician trained in occupational medicine.
Everest Telemed is currently available in 24 states, with an additional 13 states going live this year.
“Our team is dedicated to harnessing the latest technology to provide best-in-class service to our insureds,” said Laura O’Leary, Everest Insurance Director of Medical Management.
“Both the Everest Nurse Triage and Everest Telemed programs are built to ensure our workers’ compensation clients receive prompt, convenient and comprehensive care,” she explained.
