"Partnering with MEDPlus will give WSIA a unique opportunity to ensure Washington self-insured employers have a premium organization they can count on to properly, and cost effectively, manage their employee hearing related claims," said Kris Tefft, Executive Director of WSIA.

Their ability to simplify the claims process, while significantly saving our members time and money, truly makes it a win-win for all parties involved."
"Combining our claims processing expertise together with WSIA's advocacy roots, opens new doors for self-insured employers to easily get access to the tools and answers needed to take control of hearing loss claims as well as their overall expenditures," said Pete Stephens, President of MEDPlus Health Solutions.
