Why Salus

Most third-party adminstrators are compensated by the number of open claims.

Moreover, they charge extra for products and services that could reduce claims – or stop them from happening in the first place.

The system just doesn't work when TPAs have little incentive to reduce claims and lower costs. Salus doesn't just offer better workers’ injury products, we’re fixing the system.

Provider Background

Our founder, Dr. Richard Rehm, is the founder and former CEO of Concentra (the nation's largest occupational medicine provider.) Together with our senior executives, he has managed primary care for over 1,000,000 work related injuries.

This wealth of hand-on-experience gives us unique perspective–and capabilities–when managing work injury claims. We've embeded this knowledge into all of our processes and systems, using advanced data-analytics to constantly improve results.

Salus Claims Protocol

It’s not unusual for TPAs to promote their proprietary claims management processes, alluding to some vague "special-sauce" that is supposed to differentiate them. So what’s really different about the Salus Claims Protocol?

The Salus Claims Protocol codifies our core philosophy into seven actionable guidelines that are intrinsically embedded into every aspect of our claims management systems and processes to ensure the consistency of application that drives sustainable real-world results.

SCP Philosophy

Decades of clinical experience prove that the biggest driver of positive outcomes (hence lower cost) is the timely delivery of appropriate treatment. The more efficient the delivery of high-quality healthcare, the better the results for everyone.

The Salus Claims Protocol is designed to eliminate delays in reporting claims and providing care, along with expediting a return to work.

When claims do occur, our seasoned adjusters capitalize on the efficiencies afforded by the Salus Claims Protocol to deliver highly personal customer service, proactively coordinating with employers, employees and providers.

We manage every aspect of a claim to deliver the most timely, quality care, encouraging short durations and a healthy medical only / indemnity mix.

Return to work

Salus combines our care provider background with deep workplace injury experience to help employers implement successful return to work programs that significantly reduce lost workdays. By lowering claim durations and minimizing costly litigation, we can not only lower claims cost, but impact the hidden costs of lost productivity.

Program management

Salus partners with internal claims administration departments to increase efficiency and reduce costs. Fully customizable programs integrate the Salus Claims Protocol into existing work injury systems.

What we do
Managed care


Salus’ comprehensive managed care program addresses every stage of a worker’s injury. Real-time collaboration, proactive management and integrated systems ensure workers receive the right care at the right time, improving outcomes and saving money.

Remote triage

Immediate visual FROI and real-time, face-to-face video nurse triage provides a single, 24/7/365 point of contact for injured workers, encouraging full disclosure and helping prevent minor injuries from becoming costly claims.

Provider network

Salus leverages its unique provider experience to maintain the industry’s largest directly contracted, workerplace injury network. This nationwide (state-certified), outcomes-based network ensures that quality, affordable care is as close and convenient as possible.

Pharmacy network

With nearly 70,000 locations plus mail order, Salus provides workers’ immediate (first-fill), 24/7 access with no-out-of pocket expenses for them and no financial risk to you.

Utilization review

Because the Salus Claims Protocol prioritizes the timely delivery of care in order to deliver results, it’s vital that our UR program maintains 99% on-time delivery rates while still providing defensible, evidence-based guidelines that meet state and URAC standards.

Medical Bill Review

Decades of human expertise combined with one of the industry’s most advanced rules engines, allows us to negotiate an average savings of 60% from billed charges with an appeal rate less than 5%. And even though Senior Auditors review every bill, our average turn-around time is less than 2-3 days.
