State Fund Appoints Medical Director
Date:7/25/2011

SAN FRANCISCO, July 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The Board of Directors of California’s State Compensation Insurance Fund has confirmed the appointment of Dr. Bernyce M. Peplowski as its Medical Director.  Peplowski served as State Fund's interim Medical Director for six months prior to her confirmation.

Peplowski played a key role in initiating a policy for physicians in the State Fund Medical Provider Network that aligns the dispensing of opioids and compound medication in California workers' compensation claims with established medical treatment guidelines.

A key component of this policy is the establishment of a new agreement with physicians in State Fund's Medical Provider Network (MPN) that will ensure injured workers receive optimal treatment, using evidence based medicine to improve patient outcomes, and establish new guidelines for the prescription of opioids and compound medication.

As Medical Director, Peplowski will continue to spearhead this issue, as well as:

  • Manage State Fund's Utilization Review program.
  • Collaborate with the Corporate Claims Operation department to develop policies, procedures, and enhanced programs for State Fund's claims operations, and
  • Provide leadership for the medical and regulatory communities on a variety of issues.

Her experience includes serving on the American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine (ACOEM) Practice Guidelines committee. She is also a long-standing member of the California Division of Workers' Compensation (DWC) committee responsible for the development of the Medical Treatment Utilization Schedule (MTUS). She is a member of many professional medical organizations including the American Medical Association, and the American Board of Preventive Medicine in Occupational and Environmental Medicine.
