HFN Work Comp Direct allows our clients the flexibility to choose the level of service that best meets their individual requirements and needs. Work Comp Direct offers benefits similar to those of licensed WC PPP, like increasing network penetration by injured workers, without the regulatory paperwork. In addition to HFN provider panels, other cost containment program components are available on a standalone basis.

The HFN charge is a per bill fee.
Employer may elect to refer employees to an HFN Coordinated Occupational Health Provider ("COP") site by utilizing the HFN Provider Locater Service ("PLS").
