Cost Projections provide a snapshot of all medical expenses involved in particular surgery and/or treatment plan. All values are calculated based on the various fee schedules for Workers’ Compensation. To complete a cost projection, medical providers will request for an authority form, available medical reports, or detailed information on the proposed treatment (i.e. hospital name, surgery/treatment type). Cost projections are of value to claims examiners who have to reserve their claim file for future medical expenses. It can also be used by defense counsel for projecting value for settlements.
