Dedicated Claim Experts
MEMIC’s ultimate goal is to keep workers safe, but when an injury does occur, it is our mission to help get the employee back to work and back to life as it was before the accident. As workers’ compensation specialists, we know the potential impacts an injury can have on employers, injured workers and their families. Our claim team works hard to help get the best possible outcomes for all those involved.
Our dedicated claim handling approach means employers work with the same claim specialist for all their claims. And with caseloads of 115 per claim specialist, far below the industry average, we spend more time on all aspects of the claim and provide the injured workers with personal service throughout

Medical Assistance with a Focus on Return-to-Work
When a serious injury occurs, MEMIC is dedicated to helping injured workers get the medical care needed for a successful recovery while managing costs.
Certified nurse case managers
Experienced nursing professionals are assigned to all cases involving complex medical issues or prolonged lost time from work (typically 14 or more days) as well as at the onset of all catastrophic claims. And because MEMIC realizes the impact injuries can have beyond the injured worker, our nurse case managers assist the family members through the claim recovery process.
Prescription drug program
Injured workers avoid out-of-pocket costs for medication by using the convenient MEMIC prescription drug card, and we save on the billed cost by garnering below average wholesale prices. We also monitor for potential prescription drug abuse so we can intervene in a timely manner.
Medical bill and utilization review
All medical bills are analyzed with a focus on fee schedules, usual and customary pricing, and preferred provider agreements. We review the medical appropriateness of treatments using national standards and protocols recognized by providers to ensure quality guidelines are met.
Managed care and preferred providers
We have established state-approved managed care programs and preferred provider organization networks in all jurisdictions.
