WESTERVILLE, Ohio, Oct. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Central Ohio-based Progressive Medical -- a cost containment company catering to niche managed care industries -- has expanded its services to include auto-no-fault and personal injury protection offerings. Until 2001, Progressive Medical offered cost containment services exclusively to workers' compensation insurance companies and their case managers. Cost containment services included coordination and follow up of an injured worker's health care for all work-related injuries. By providing a national network of services, Progressive Medical's clients realized significant cost savings through the firm's contract pricing and efficiency programs. Earlier this year, Progressive Medical expanded its services to include auto insurance cases from auto-no-fault and personal injury protection coverage. Auto-no-fault is auto insurance that pays claims without regard to cause of the accident. Personal injury protection is insurance coverage that provides medical, funeral and lost income arising from auto accident-related injuries. "After looking closely at auto-no-fault and personal injury protection, we realized that the fundamentals of how these insurance claims are managed for the injured parties is similar to workers' compensation insurance claims," said David Bianconi, president of Progressive Medical. "It was the next logical direction for Progressive Medical's strategic growth, and it's been a successful venture thus far." Founded in 1986, Progressive Medical, Inc. is a managed care cost containment company. The firm coordinates medical equipment and supplies, pharmaceutical supplies, home health care, medical transportation, translation services, independent medical exams, and catastrophic claims coordination on behalf of eligible injured parties throughout the United States.
