Paduda, is a national blogger and thought leader in workers’ compensation. He will discuss his perspectives on:
· Common misconceptions about workers’ comp
· What’s really happening with medical costs
· Why workers’ comp rates are still too high – a theory
· Where – and why- medical costs will increase, and
· Why we need to pay a lot more attention to the real world (outside of workers’ comp).
The world is very different than it was just a few short years ago – so much of our world is now driven by medical economics. And at such a small percentage of total health care costs in the US – workers’ compensation is the tail, not the dawg. Medical costs now represent the majority of workers’ compensation costs. What happens in Washington DC, what happens to Medicare and Medicaid is important to workers’ compensation. Paduda will talk about the real-world impacts of Medicaid dis-enrollment, Medicaid Disproportionate Share Hospital programs, Merit based Incentive Payment Systems and their impact on health care – and workers’ compensation. Agree or disagree, no one argues that Paduda’s positions are not well researched and documented. He is an entertaining speaker, an excellent prognosticator and well respected throughout the industry – his message is something we all need to be aware of.
