PartnerSource injury benefit plans afford medical coverage for those injuries and for conditions that directly and solely result from the course and scope of employment -- with a few exceptions. Consistent among the few exceptions are criteria that, if satisfied, indicate the work activity, although not the direct and sole cause of the injury, is to a reasonable degree of medical probability a major contributing cause. Hernias are one such exception.
Have you experienced a situation where an employee injury is so unique that it’s challenging to determine how the injury benefit plan applies in that specific set of facts? For more than 30 years, PartnerSource has designed custom plans for clients and consulted on claim decisions when plan questions arise. Despite the level of detail included in these custom plans, it’s impossible for every claim scenario to be contemplated, creating gray areas that need to be interpreted by the plan fiduciary. This can seem like a daunting task, magnified by the understanding that the injured employee is impacted by the decision. However, PartnerSource has demonstrated that by approaching any seemingly gray area with a few key things in mind, employers can feel confident the plan is being applied appropriately and fairly.
