Niki Ingram, director of the Workers' Compensation Department, will be a featured speaker at the 13th Annual National Workers’ Compensation Insurance ExecuSummit. In her presentation, "Exploring the Rising Use and Costs of Compounded Medications in Workers' Compensation," Niki will address the recent trend of utilizing compounded medication as a reasonable alternative to traditional prescription care. This ala carte drug preparation is being billed as the treatment du jour for injured workers nationwide. But for those footing that bill, the result is often not what the doctor ordered, with otherwise manageable claims seeing swift and steep increases in exposure to medical expenses. With many unanswered questions surrounding the efficacy, regulation, consistency, and overall utilization of compounded medication, what is the payers’ remedy for cost control? Discussion topics will include what compounded medications are and how they are impacting the workers' compensation system, best practices in identifying compounded medications claims exposures, how the legislature and judiciary are responding to such claims, and how the Affordable Care Act is impacting pharmacy and compounded medication costs.

The Worker's Compensation Insurance ExecuSummit is specifically designed for worker’s compensation insurance professionals. The summit producers are at the forefront of the workers’ compensation insurance industry, monitoring and researching emerging issues and trends and conveying this strategic intelligence as it is developing.
