From the WCI Program: “Trust but verify, a proverb popularized near the end of the Cold War, is a fitting description of industry’s obligation — yes obligation — to properly conserve the flow of WC assets. Unlike other areas of law, in accepted claims we start with a host of obligations to our so-called adversaries who in turn are obliged to be truthful in all dealings. But human nature being what it is, the temptation to take more sometimes takes hold, and every claims entity must have means of assuring outgoing monies are well spent. But: these things, as the Witch of the West noted, “must be done delicately.” Overreach or misstep, and your organization will come to trouble, so much so that some have abandoned all effort, which is the wrong take-away! What are the flags and triggers? What are the latest, most appropriate means? And finally — where many good cases tank — how to insure that what is found is also usable!”
