    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
     Earlier this year, Progressive Medical expanded its services to include
 auto insurance cases from auto-no-fault and personal injury protection
     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
     "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
