The Corvel program is designed to help the injured worker in the following ways:
It will help the employee avoid out‐of‐pocket expenses for prescriptions to treat on‐the‐job injuries.
First-fill medications can be obtained after hours, weekends, and holidays.
It will eliminate most paperwork associated with employee reimbursements.
It will ensure that prescription medications can be accessed with a national pharmacy network.
It will reduce authorization delays that are associated with paperbound script processing.
Finally, it will provide extended service hours and staff to address the injured employee’s questions.
How is compensability determined?
Compensability is determined from the electronic Employer’s Report of Injury and/or a phone call with the agency management reporting the facts of the injury. The SSIF claim representatives utilize the Kansas Laws and Regulations to determine compensability of a claim.
