Claims Administration

PARSAC utilizes a dedicated Workers' Compensation Unit which is responsive to employees and ensures their needs are met and they are returned to work appropriately. The unit is composed of two dedicated Examiners, Claims Assistant, Nurse Advocate, and Medical Director who have  been instrumental in controlling costs through managing treatment and  maintaining timely communication with all parties. 

We strive to promote a Zero Litigation Philosophy that ensures all employees receive quality care and timely benefits without the necessity of legal intervention. In the event legal counsel becomes necessary, the Workers' Compensation Defense Panel helps to ensure members have quality representation at the various appeals boards. Please refer to the Panel Resolution for the list of panel firms, assignment of counsel, and maximum rates.
