VMLIP offers contract review to ensure that member contracts containing insurance requirements not only have the required insurance placement, but that member entities do not unintentionally waive rights or accept liability on behalf of another. This is offered at no cost. VMLIP can also assist with drafting contract language to ensure that contracts have the needed insurance requirements.
First-Fill Prescription Program
Provides payment for the first prescription(s) needed by an injured employee, ensuring they face no out-of-pocket expenses – even if the claim is later found to be non-compensable. Through workers’ compensation injured employees have access to more than 1,500 pharmacies throughout Virginia.
