1.29.18 – (LAA) – Changes to Workers’ Compensation Managed Care

 

 

Changes to Workers’ Compensation Managed Care – LAA

 

Effective February 1, 2018, the following changes will take place in regard to Compensation Managed Care for Flight Attendants based in California, Illinois, and Texas:

 

California: Sedgwick/Harbor MPN will be replacing HarborOne/Genex.

Flight Attendants who have a workers’ compensation claim may be required to change their treating physician. If necessary, you will receive a notification with instructions on how to select a new treating physician. You will have 14 days from the date of notification to make your selection.

This would also be a good time to make sure you have a current predesignated physician on file. If not, you can use the form on the APFA IOD Department page to record a predesignated physician. If you have questions about predesignating a physician, contact an APFA rep on duty.

Illinois:

You may continue to treat with any physician who accepts Workers’ Compensation, but to receive salary continuance, you will need to treat with a medical provider by going to www.iodmedical.com.

Flight Attendants based at ORD will receive this notification via email.

 

Texas: Sedgwick Preferred Network will be replacing the Genex Health Care Network.

Flight Attendants who have a workers’ compensation claim may be required to change their treating physician. If necessary, you will receive a notification with instructions on how to select a new treating physician. You will have 14 days from the date of notification to make your selection.

If you have questions about the change, please contact your adjuster at Sedgwick at 800 677-1412.
