Disability Management

What is the Difference Between Short-Term vs. Long-Term Disability?

When a person struggles with an illness or injury that is not related to work but makes it disabling to work, their insurance company may support treatments that will assist in their rehabilitation. While insurance plans vary, short-term disability often involves prompt partial income replacement over several months. By contrast, long-term disability provides benefits over a longer period stated in years. Each type will involve an application process with different qualifying criteria.

Are You Struggling to
Get Back to Work?

The prospect of returning to work following an illness or injury (psychological or physical) can be a daunting and stressful experience. To assist you in your return to work or other roles of productivity, treatment often involves a collaboration between your employer, physician, and insurer (if applicable). It involves working through what caused you to stop working in the first place and increasing your readiness/tolerance for work duties that meet your functional abilities.

Disability Claims Services

Assessment, Treatment, And Return to Work Preparation

The types of services you are eligible for under a disability claim are typically under the discretion of a case manager, rehabilitation coordinator, or return to work specialist. Oftentimes, your insurer will rely on medical documentation to make such decisions and seek disability management program providers to assist in this process. You are encouraged to inquire about additional supports with whoever is managing your file directly. If approved, your insurer will set-up a direct contract with our clinic to provide the requested service. A gradual return to work plan and recommendations for workplace adjustments or accommodations (temporary or permanent) may be required to assist you with your goals.
