Nurse Case Manager Guidelines - Klezmer Maudlin PC

What Nurse Case Managers Can and Cannot Do

The Indiana Worker’s Compensation Board’s website contains a set of guidelines that applies to nurse case managers.  Those guidelines state as follows:

  • A NCM may be involved in a claim to schedule appointments, help facilitate care suggested by the medical provider, and to report back to the employer and/or carrier.  However, a NCM should not express opinions to either the injured worker or the medical provider regarding an injured worker’s course of medical care, or otherwise attempt to influence the process.  Additionally, a claims adjuster should not attempt to direct the care provided to an injured worker by the authorized treating doctor.
