February Workers’ Compensation Webinar – Meet Members of the Athens Team
The California JPIA will host its next Workers’ Compensation Webinar on Thursday, February 16, at 10:00 a.m. Attendees will hear from several members of our new third-party administrator team at Athens Administrators and learn about their approach to claims handling and client service.
Kevin Fritzsche, who formerly managed the Authority’s program at Sedgwick, has joined Athens as a division claims manager and once again oversees our claims team. He will address topics including Athens’ history, philosophy, culture, and some of the benefits our members will enjoy as part of our move to Athens.
Leann Farlander, Athens’ associate vice president of cost containment, will discuss the company’s approach to managed care services such as bill review, utilization review, and nurse case management.
Manuel Berumen, an account manager with Athens, will discuss our members’ access to Athens’ claims system and the reports it can provide.
We look forward to having you join us next month, and for those that are unavailable to attend the live webinar, a recording will be available on the Authority’s website. For any questions, please contact Jeff Rush, workers’ compensation program manager.
