Managed Care Organizations will rarely go out of their way to seek injured workers that have been found MMI to refer them to voc. Most of the time, they consider their job of medically managing the claim to be finished. What about the injured worker? What happens to him or her?
MAKE A REFERRAL TO IVS FOR VOC REHAB SERVICES
If you or your client has been found MMI and have permanent work restrictions, make a referral into vocational rehabilitation. At IVS, we can help injured workers identify their functional capacity, their transferrable skills, and perhaps get additional skills through a work adjustment program. All of this leads to a job search and job placement to ultimately help them get back to work within their new physical restrictions.
VOC REHAB MEANS ADDITIONAL COMPENSATION
Once in an approved voc rehab plan, an injured worker will receive living maintenance compensation. Remember, IVS is an advocate for the injured workers. Read more about the IVS DIFFERENCE.
