How do drug formularies affect injured workers? In this edition of Workers’ Comp Matters, host Alan Pierce talks to Tom Holder about the role of drug formularies in workers’ compensation. Drug formularies are put in place by insurance companies to regulate the amount and duration of medications for injured workers. Are these helpful in lessening medical costs, or are they a burden for workers and their doctors? Alan and Tom discuss the many issues surrounding drug formularies and their pros and cons in relation to overall medical care costs and quality of care for injured workers.

Tom Holder has practiced as a claimants’ attorney for over 30 years and is a nationally known expert in workers’ compensation law.
