The moment a 35-year old shipyard worker’s hand was crushed by a door roller, his future flashed before his eyes. When the local treating doctor recommended a four-finger amputation, the AEU claims team wisely advocated for a Best In Class MD second opinion. The BICMD provider, a leading expert hand and wrist surgeon, successfully changed the course of care to a reconstructive procedure, salvaging the workers’ four fingers and enabling him to return to full duty work just 5 months after the accident.
While it is of course impossible to quantify the value of retaining full function of a hand or the ability for an individual to remain in the workforce, there are undoubtedly consistent financial savings that result from the delivery of high quality care. In this case, direct savings for the recommended operation was $160,000 and indirect savings for the associated disability and litigation fees was an additional $200,000.
Laborers are at high risk for injury due to the nature of their jobs, and organizations who cover these claims are faced with difficult challenges related to medical management and how to best advocate for their clients and members.
