Employers Can Get Free "Quick Check" of Their Workers' Comp Practices at www.ReduceYourWorkersComp.com From Amaxx Risk Solutions

HARTFORD, CT--(Marketwire - May 15, 2009) - Employers can now get a quick readout on how their workers' compensation procedures stack up against best practices at www.ReduceYourWorkersComp.com.

The free quick-check is based on 10 key questions that cover management commitment, claims administration, post-injury response, return to work, cost containment, and fraud detection. Employers get an immediate score from 1 to 100 and recommendations for improvement.

For instance, employers that don't physically review workers' comp claim files get this recommendation: "If you aren't reviewing your files on a regular basis, they may not be handled as aggressively as necessary to reduce your workers' comp costs. Even though you may review your claims telephonically, it's good to have on-site reviews periodically to get the best quality claims handling."

The quick-check is available via the homepage www.ReduceYourWorkersComp.com. Optionally, it can be private-labeled and customized for associations, organizations, brokers and insurance companies.

The Workers' Comp Quick Check™ is part of Amaxx Risk Solutions' online Workers' Compensation Injury Management Tool Kit®, based on decades of successful workers' comp cost-techniques proven to cut costs 20 percent to 50 percent. It is based on that same concepts found in the 2009 RIMS® Benchmarking Survey™, which includes workers' compensation best practices for the first time.

Full score available

The Workers' Comp Quick Check gives employers a rough estimate of their National Workers' Compensation Management Score™ (NWCMS), which is a comprehensive assessment of a company's operational best practices. Also developed by Amaxx, the NWCMS is quickly becoming the industry standard for determining how well a company is managing workers' comp practices.

The NWCMS can be purchased through RIMS® at http://www.RIMS.org/wc, where RIMS members get a 25% discount, or through Advisen at http://corner.advisen.com/wc. More information can be obtained by calling Advisen's Merri Bastone at 212-897-4800.
