WCF Insurance Wins Mitchell 2018 mPower Award

October 15, 2018
Mitchell International, a leading provider of insurance technology, held its annual Property and Casualty Conference October 1-3, 2018 near Palm Springs, CA. During the gathering, Mitchell’s president and CEO, Alex Sun, announced the winners of the second annual Mitchell mPower Awards. The program celebrates customers who are delivering better outcomes through innovative technology or business transformations. WCF Insurance won the prestigious award for its work fighting the opioid epidemic through programs for injured workers. WCF Insurance, along with Property Damage Appraisers, won the award for their outstanding efforts in 2018.

According to Mitchell International:
As Utah’s premier workers’ compensation insurance provider, WCF Insurance has been protecting both workers and employers for more than 100 years. Like many states across the U.S., addiction to prescription painkillers has reached epidemic proportions in Utah. With a commitment to finding an effective way to address the crisis affecting its community, WCF developed a program to get the right medication to the right people for the right situation, resulting in less opportunity for individuals to begin a path to tolerance, addiction, or abuse. To ensure a successful adoption, they conducted extensive outreach to the medical community. After implementing its Pharmacy Partnership Program, WCF saw a 51% decrease in the quantity of opioid pills dispensed—the implied equivalent of a more than 41,000 opioid pill reduction from the prior year. That is 41,000 fewer opportunities for individuals to begin an unintended path toward addiction. Moreover, because of their outreach, WCF’s programs have significantly influenced a broader network of health partners who have followed WCF’s lead by adopting its protocols.”
