Workers' compensation consultant Joe Paduda, who has been attending the Prescription Drug Abuse Summit in Orlando, said it's too bad there aren't more comp executives and actuaries there. He writes on his website Managed Care Matters that they need to wake up to the toll that prescription painkillers are taking.
