A successful settlement initiative requires analyzing cost drivers across legacy claims to eliminate barriers to resolution, establish whether to settle immediately, or match cases with optimal interventions, such as physician peer review, clinical oversight or legal action. Learn how Swissport, an employer in a high-risk industry, initiated an aggressive settlement process, and discover how you can adopt those lessons to create new claims management practices.
