Why The Alliance
Thank you for considering the Alliance. We understand you have a choice when it comes to contracting with health care networks and we are confident you will be pleased to join one of the top workers' compensation networks in the state. The Alliance exclusively serves public employers.
Our goal is to contract with the best health care providers; so teachers, fire fighters, law enforcement officers, municipal and county workers, as well as other public employees have access to top quality, local health care when they are injured on the job.
Our focus is identifying and contractin with the best quality and most efficient health care providers. We understand quality health care leads to better outcomes for injured employees. With this in mind, the Alliance has consistently achieved superior results: fast, local access to care, continuity of care, lower overall medical costs, lower perscription drug utilization, and quicker return-to-work for injured employees. We follow evidence-based Official Disability Guidelines (ODG) to ensure the best outcomes for injured workers.
The Alliance is not a "discount network." Compared to current CMS and group health network reimbursements, the Alliance offers very competitive compensation. We never sell or rent our network. The Alliance is exclusively available to the members of Alliance risk pools.
Making workers' compensation work
Our direct-contracting program is desinged to foster cooperative relationships between providers, adjusters, injured workers and employers. We encourage an open dialouge during the course of treatment to ensure injured employees can get back to a healthy and productive life as soon as possible. We provide complimentary on-site training for all contracted providers to familiarize your staff with workers' compensation rules, processes and paperwork. Alliance staff is always a resource to assist you in resolving issues or answering questions.
