ComPro, Inc. offers the most thorough, accurate
and aggressive claim closure preparation services available in Oregon.
All insurers and self-insured employers in Oregon are required to close
disabling work injury claims in conformance with the Oregon Revised Statutes,
Oregon Administrative Rules and Workers' Compensation Division bulletins.
A myriad of standards and forms govern the closure of initial claims,
aggravation claims, new condition and omitted condition claims and claims
reopened under the Board's Own Motion.
Closing a claim is an extremely complex process which allows virtually
no room for error. Done properly and aggressively, the cost savings benefits
can be enormous. Closures done improperly or prematurely can be devasting
to both the employer (or insurer) and the worker.
How does the ComPro, Inc. closure process work?
Ideally, ComPro, Inc. arranges an introductory meeting with a potential
client. This meeting serves to establish both the level of service
the client desires as well as the information that will be needed
to complete the closure/audit process.
A schedule is agreed upon which will result in timely closures. Claims
examiners can simply place claims that are ready for closure in an
"in-bin" for us. ComPro, Inc. will maintain a diary to control timeliness
ComPro, Inc. will determine whether the claim is qualified for closure
and if so, complete the closure forms. Depending on the level of service
desired, we will produce and mail all necessary copies of the closure
and associated documents (1644, 1503, 2807, palliative care letter,
UNOA, and NOC cover letter). We will also complete an audit of benefits
awarded by the closure vs. benefits paid either automatically or on
If the claim is not ready for closure (information is not sufficient,
etc.) ComPro, Inc. will complete a "Pre-Closure Review" form to outlines
what is necessary to achieve closure and forward back to the examiner
for additional work.
Why have ComPro, Inc. do your closures?
To the best of our knowledge, ComPro, Inc. offers the most comprehensive
closure service available in Oregon. We gather claim information ourselves,
then produce, copy and mail ALL closure related documents. Other providers
require clients to provide information and produce an incomplete closure
that the client's staff has to finish, print, copy and mail. Using
ComPro, Inc. clearly saves considerable staff time and expense.
ComPro, Inc. minimizes PPD by limiting the awards to only those
residuals associated with the accepted condition. We aggressively
challenge doctors and the findings they provide - even to the point
of communicating with the doctors ourselves, if necessary. We have
saved our clients thousands of dollars on many claims by closely monitoring
ComPro, Inc. ensures that time loss awards are accurate. We carefully
determine time loss periods in accordance with the laws and rules
and follow our closure with an audit of benefits due (awarded) vs.
As far as we know, ComPro, Inc. is the only closure provider that
produces a benefits audit with the closure. The cost savings realized
from the ability to find and deduct overpaid compensation can be astonishing.
Compliance audit deviations can also be greatly reduced. This service
guarantees accurate payment of compensation for both the employer
(or insurer) and the worker.
How much does it cost?
Currently, ComPro, Inc.'s rates are $85.00 for a time loss only closure
and $135.00 for a closure with PPD. This includes all forms and associated
letters (1644, 1503, 2807, UNOA, palliative care, and NOC cover letter)
copied and mailed to all parties and a completed audit of the compensation
due and paid. Audits are billed at an additional $50.00 per claim volume.
