Its total program solution results in a 51% decrease in the likelihood that a claim will mature into a two-year claim. In addition, as a percentage of total prescription volume, use of long-acting and immediate-release opioid analgesics is down while use of anti-inflammatory medications, anticonvulsant and antidepressant medications is either flat or up.
  • Through its expertise in government affairs, Progressive Medical has been instrumental in shaping policy that addresses many of the external influences impacting industry payors. In addition to being actively engaged in legislative matters regarding physician dispensing, repackaged medication reimbursement, workers' compensation reform and the opioid epidemic, among others, the company routinely guides clients through regulatory implementations and educates policy makers on the implication of legislation on the industry.
  • Emry Sisson and Tommy Young , co-chief executive officers, commented: "Our results demonstrate that the combination of our network, utilization management and proactive clinical programs is effectively reducing costs, diminishing out-of-network hassles, streamlining claim processes and increasing workflow efficiencies.
