Woburn, Massachusetts - BMEGateway, the national leader in Independent Evaluation and Review services for over 20 years, announces that the 2010 Insurance Symposium will be held Tuesday May 18, 2010 at the Granite Links Golf Club in Quincy, MA.
This educational symposium brings together claims professionals, attorneys, clinicians and medical experts in a forum to discuss the ever-changing medical and legal issues faced by the industry.
John C. Addonizio, BMEGateway CEO, noted that the symposium was so well received and attended last year, that we felt an obligation to challenge ourselves to do something even better to celebrate our twentieth anniversary. BMEGateway has chosen a focused topic that would be both beneficial and educational. “Our Orthopedic Surgeons are the best in the business. Most claims have an orthopedic element. Why not delve deeply into the orthopedic specialty area? Our keynote speaker, Mr. Armentano, is a leader in the insurance claims world for the Travelers in the Workers Compensation and Auto Markets. His insights into the today’s claims environment will make for a great keynote opening. It will tie together well. This will be a special day.”
