Disability Management

What we offer

We take a fully integrated, multi-disciplinary approach to disability case management that seamlessly guides claimants through their treatment and recovery—every step of the way. We have an in-house team of over 130 professionals to handle all aspects of case management – from a full assessment of a claimant’s level of function to a thorough analysis of workplace programs and accommodations. Our goal is to return claimants back to health and back to work, safely and quickly.

Experience

We provide disability coverage to groups ranging from 3 to 35,000 employees. Offering coverage for both short term disability—including a Salary Continuance option—and long-term disability.

Expertise

We have a team of qualified specialists that help ensure a successful return to work. From our short- and long-term disability management specialists to individual interventions that help each person on a one-on-one basis get access to the care they need; our approach is to manage every claim with care and attention, while bringing the best resources to each situation based on the employee’s needs.

Innovation

We are continually exploring new approaches and technologies to streamline claims, including paperless workflows and the ability for members to know the status of their claim as it moves through the acceptance process.
