Sample text

From a policy perspective, the intriguing question is to what degree the existence of-and uncertainty about-liability causes industry to move reluctantly into the direct provision and management of health and medical care. OSHA and the Toxic Substances Control Act are rapidly forcing the employer into the role of health status analyst, monitor, and, in effect, guardian. There are as yet too few legal cases for employers to know the extent of their liability. The extent of the potential problem, however, is obvious considering that the Toxic Substances Control Act alone will require over 20 million workers to be screened at least annually.

Third: Confidentiality-in my opinion, this is the greatest need of all in this somewhat difficult area of health care. There are no claim forms. We tell subscriber employees, that no one in the office and no one at home, if you don't want to discuss the problem right now, needs to know. Fourth: Quality control-we are using paid providers who have agreed to several major requirements: They must attend professional standards and management meetings-in-service training, continuing education (in fact, we have arranged continuing education credit for these sessions], which are held in major population centers throughout the state.

Even in health education there lurks the spectre of a suit based on a negative outcome when corporate, or just corporately distributed, advice is followed. Even more uncertain is whether there is liability for not disseminating certain types of information. For large companies, these problems, although significant, will not prohibit providing health care. For smaller ones, the cost of malpractice insurance alone is a major barrier to the direct provision of medical care. Toward the other end of the spectrum of corporate concerns for liability is the issue of health education.
