Ametros’ Senior Managing Director, Paul Sighinolfi will participate in two sessions of the Tennessee Bureau of Workers’ Conference Educational conference. He will discuss the art of helping injured workers decide between self-administration or professional administration regarding their Medicare Set Asides. As more injured workers, employers, and insurance carriers recognize the benefits of closing medical benefits, more injured workers find themselves navigating the complex world of Medicare and Medicare Advantage plans on their own.
“Medicare Set-Aside Agreements: Helping Injured Workers Decide Between Self-Administration and Professional Administration” will examine the risks of self-administration, including its reporting requirements, along with common mistakes injured workers often make. Paul joins Humana’s Brian Bargender for this informative discussion on Thursday, June 13, starting at 11 a.m. Lisa Armstrong, a mediation specialist with the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation, will moderate the hour-long session.
As the former Executive Director and Chairman of the Main Workers' Compensation Board, Paul will also speak on Wednesday, June 12th at 3:15PM where he will will dust off his regulator’s hat to join the Regulator Roundtable. Panelists will discuss the challenges and issues that individual jurisdictions face when providing oversight of the constantly evolving workers’ compensation landscape. IAIABC’s Executive Director, Jennifer Wolf, will moderate the session that also features Abbie Hudgens of the Tennessee Division of Workers’ Compensation, Wesley Marshall, Virginia Workers’ Compensation Commissioner; Cassie Brown with the Texas Division of Workers’ Compensation; and Frank McKay, chairman and Chief Appellate Judge of the Georgia State Board of Workers’ Compensation.
