Since 1985, MCN has been an industry leader in providing medical management services and solutions to the workers’ compensation, auto/liability, group health and disability markets.
MCN's physicians and other consultants are recruited and credentialed specifically for the provision of medical judgment services. Our consultants have been selected for their willingness to understand the unique role that the independent reviewer/examiner must fill. Our consultants provide an objective and outside review of medical claims; by assessing records, claimant history and examination factors to reach their conclusions and create a written report for our clients, to help them make claims decisions.
MCN understands that mastering this shift in roles is a skill that requires special training for many clinicians more accustomed to the treatment role—training which for MCN begins with the careful selection and orientation of consultants. We also recognize the importance of reputation and credibility, and carefully credential consultants through external primary-source verification of licensure, Board Certification and regulatory compliance. Each MCN consultant is recruited directly by the company. We do not lease or re-label existing treatment networks for evaluation services.
In performing examinations and peer reviews, our consultants consider information that may include medical records; other related claim records; claimant questionnaires; laboratory and imaging data; histories from claimants; and the physical or mental status examination. Our services encompass but are not limited to Independent Medical Examinations, Peer reviews, and Medical Bill reviews. Our clients include those managing workers' compensation, casualty, disability, and group health claims.
MCN has a deep commitment to medical integrity in the assessment of injury and disability claims. MCN partners with consultants who remember that they are physicians first and that their duty is to examine data thoroughly, respond clearly to questions, report their findings objectively, and treat claimants with dignity and respect.
There are no short-cuts to quality and integrity.
We see these as basic standards that we believe our industry should follow and all clients should expect. We take pride in leading our industry by example and through professional collaboration with respected competitors who endorse and follow ethical standards.
MCN works with 16,000 affiliated physicians across the country and maintains offices in nine states, allowing clients and claimants to access our services anywhere in the US and Canada. MCN was the first company in its field to create a national platform through our national division, opened in 1997.
To support our nationwide presence, MCN has a comprehensive knowledge of health industry regulations in all jurisdictions as well as a solid grounding in changing federal and state regulations affecting health care insurance coverage and review. MCN's clients include regional municipalities and national agencies as well as self-insured entities, workers' compensation managers, auto and disability carriers, as well as individual and group health providers.
MCN's nationwide network of physicians is supported through our pioneering work in medical records technology. MCN programs seamlessly interact with existing benefits administration programs, resulting in timely reports that clients can use in their claims determination.
