Benefit Consultation Team

 

Purpose

Respond to inquiries from injured workers, insurers, employers, medical providers, and attorneys in an effort to resolve misunderstandings and differences that might otherwise result in sanctions or litigation.

 

Responsibilities

General inquiries: Interpret workers' compensation law and respond in person, by phone, or in writing.

Litigation: Review and interpret litigation orders to determine the effect they may have on claims and if further division action is required.
 

Functions

The benefit consultants respond to general inquiries in person, over the telephone, or by letter, including written responses for signature by the administrator, the director, a legislator, or the governor. Workers' compensation issues related to injured worker benefits are usually resolved by letter or phone, but in some cases, benefit consultants may issue administrative orders.
