State Compensation Insurance Fund will soon transition to a new outcomes-based medical provider network following a California Division of Workers’ Compensation approval of the new MPN called the State Fund MPN by Harbor Health.
State Fund said it is transitioning to this new network to improve patient outcomes and quality of care for the injured employees it serves.
Set to launch in February, the State Fund MPN by Harbor Health is comprised of doctors with demonstrated track records of effectively treating workplace injures through use of evidenced-based medicine. Studies demonstrate that physicians who practice evidence-based medicine achieve better outcomes for injured employees, namely restoring them to health and productivity as quickly as possible, according to State Fund.
State Fund is California’s largest provider of workers’ comp insurance.
