We are often asked about work comp dispensing.  Serving patients that fall under the workers compensation umbrella can be a great opportunity for medical clinics.  Reimbursement is dictated by state regulation but is generally very fair for the practice.  The only trick is to make sure that you file accurate HCFA claim forms in a timely fashion to speed the reimbursement process.

A key element to successfully managing workers compensation dispensing is having a good medication tracking system.  Though clinics can certainly track dispenses and file claims without medication tracking software, having an electronic system streamlines the process and reduces errors.  Northwind Pharmaceuticals offers dispensing software to manage this process.  Northwind will also manage the entire workers comp reimbursement process for clinics that want additional support.

The good news is that clinics can integrate workers compensation dispensing with traditional cash and carry dispensing to serve a broader population.  Give us a call and we’ll be glad to discuss the possibilities with you.
