Delivering the Gold Standard in Managed Care
In an expanding partnership with the City and County of San Francisco (CCSF), EK Health Services, Inc. recently implemented medical bill review, utilization review and nurse case management services to the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA). The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency oversees transit, streets and taxis in the city of San Francisco, California.
Since 2013, EK Health and CCSF have partnered to provide injured workers with the best possible medical care for work-related injuries and illnesses. In 2017, those services expanded to include medical bill review and repricing solutions, along with utilization review.
EK Health looks forward to partnering with SFMTA and their third-party administrator, Intercare, to continue optimizing workers’ compensation outcomes for CCSF’s and SFMTA’s employees. EK Health strategically combines technology and clinical excellence for its clients, now including SFMTA and their employees, while continuing its pursuit to transform managed care.
Kerri Wilson, President & COO, commented:
“Working alongside one of our neighboring cities is a privilege and we are proud to be affiliated with SFMTA. In the news you see SFMTA’s passion to promote efficient, economical and sustainable transportation options to travelers in San Francisco – making it not only easier, but enticing to change the way people navigate the City. It is evident we share like philosophies by providing necessary alternatives to long-standing issues. We look forward to a long, productive partnership."
