The Company responded immediately to the COVID-19 pandemic, making required adjustments to reflect the reduced level of healthcare created by the lockdowns across the Country. CorVel has prioritized the physical wellbeing of its employees and uninterrupted service to customers through seamless transition to remote working, which in turn has impacted overall financial results.
“These times are unprecedented, and as a company, we were forced to make difficult but necessary decisions at the onset of the pandemic, including an 8% reduction in force that began in the March quarter and continued through the June quarter in order to protect the company while maintaining operations and supporting our customers,” said Michael Combs, CorVel’s President and CEO. “CorVel is a lean, fiscally conservative organization with solid business fundamentals and a strong balance sheet. Our team, systems, and distributed environment position us well to meet the needs of our customers during this unusual time. We enter this period from a position of strength. CorVel has thrived over the last 30 years, regardless of external challenges. I would like to thank all of the CorVel team members for their significant efforts to maintain operations, support our customers and communities with adaptability and resilience over the last several months,” continued Combs.
The Company is leveraging its expertise in technology and telehealth into expanded virtual services, with the goal of minimizing the spread of COVID-19 and of quickly identifying and safely treating all workers’ compensation cases.
The Company’s Virtual Care platform, which includes telehealth, ancillary benefit, case management and pharmacy services is now fully integrated with our Advocacy 24/7 services.
