Urine Drug Testing for worker’s Compensation

Helping clinicians improve claimant outcomes

As a worker’s’ compensation professional, your goal is to get claimants back to work as soon as they are able while efficiently managing costs. Controlling pain is an important part of many injured worker’s’ treatment, yet it can be a substantial expense. Up to 86% of all worker’s’ compensation claimants receive opioids for pain management. Medication monitoring for worker’s comp provides important objective information to clinicians prescribing opioids and other controlled substances for the treatment of injured worker’s.

There is evidence that urine drug screens can identify aberrant opioid use and other substance use that otherwise is not apparent to the treating physician. In fact, ACOEM Guidelines recommend that injured worker’s receiving chronic opioid therapy be monitored through routine assessment that includes urine toxicology screens
