Our Team

Positive Impact

The Arbicare team has multiple decades of experience in workers’ compensation utilization management. We have the unique perspective of having observed both macro and micro level trends as it relates to utilization management programs in our space. The managed care industry continues to consolidate as workplace injury rates decrease. The result is a managed care industry with less utilization management focus, conflicting incentives, reduced flexibility, and limited innovation.

With Arbicare, utilization management serves our clients, injured workers, physicians, families, and communities. Meet the team who is breaking the mold and helping utilization management better produce its intended outcomes.
