Who's Who of Workers Compensation
#1
Question 
Hi!

I've been googling around on Workers Comp to try and make heads and tails of this whole process, so I'm trying to figure out who's who. I want to make sure that when I'm on the phone with my insurance company, I know who I'm talking to and what their role in my journey is. So, in short,

What's the difference between:

Claims Manager

Claims Handler

Claims Adjuster

Claims Consultant

Nurse Case Manager

Insurance Broker

Insurance Agent

Vocational Specialist

Claims Underwriter

Thanks for your time,
(I'm in Massachusetts)

There are no universal titles, every company has their own.
Claims Manager supervises a claims department.
A handler could be any non supervisor in claims department.
Claims adjuster has caseload in a claims department.
Consultant is someone outside of department who offers advice.
Nurse case manager generally interfaces between adjuster and medical services- may or may not report to the claims manager
INS broker Interfaces between employer and Carrier — usually on the purchase/underwriting side
INS agent works for a broker
A voc rehab specialist is a consultant who performs or advises on vocational rehabilitation issues - may or may not report to claims mgr.
Claims underwriter=???

Again these are only generalization and vary by carrier, state, and organizational structure.
I am surprised this isn’t,t available on the internet.
Did you try the dictionary of occupational titles or Onet?
