Market Expertise

Marquee Managed Care offers an integrated approach to solving the many intricate managed care needs in the California Workers’ Compensation arena. One of our key advantages is that Marquee Managed Care nurses and bill reviewers work on the same system platforms. This integration allows direct access between the nursing and bill review teams should questions arise regarding authorization or appropriateness of medical treatment. This integration also allows all parties involved to have real-time access to medical reports, correspondence and claim documentation for accurate authorization of treatment and precise payment of authorized care.

Medical differentiators

Unlike most Utilization Review entities, our Medical Director is readily available to the nurses and staff with one touch of a button. He provides didactic updates, which enable the caller to fully understand complex or multiple issues, further enhancing claims handling.
