Evaluate your insurer: Are disability cases well managed?
Are you under the impression that…
…you don’t always agree with the decisions made by your provider?
…your organization is fully responsible for employees’ return to work?
…your last insurance renewal didn’t go as planned?
You can mitigate the adverse effects of disabilities!
Foster a partnership between your organization and the disability manager
Evaluate the following:
What is the usual response time?
Does your provider offer internal resources to facilitate return to work, at the right time?
These elements affect the duration of a disability and the workforce coordination within your organization. Improving communication with your insurer will allow you to find solutions and promote healthy returns to work.
