How to Solve Complex Disability Management Issues in Indigenous Organizations?
It is no secret to employers that managing short-term, long-term, and occupational disability, as well as other absence-related matters, can be overwhelming – even at the best of times. It is not uncommon for a seemingly simple case to quickly develop into a much more complex and challenging one, for even experienced HR or health & safety professionals. Entrusting your disability claim management to experts in the field alleviates the administrative burden from your organization while guaranteeing exceptional results.
From the onset of a claim through to its conclusion, Disability Management Companies (DMC) proactively manage occupational, non-occupational injuries and illnesses with personalized recover-at-work solutions.
The following benefits are usually provided to our clients through our third party disability management providers:
- A collaborative review of your company’s return-to-work policies and procedures to ensure best practices are in place. This includes establishing/understanding job demands, modified duties and developing comprehensive “Employee return to work” plan development for current and future use.
- Management, record-keeping and constant stakeholders communication from onset of a disability to its conclusion.
- Comprehensive custom reporting includes, but is not limited to, claims activity reports, trend analyses, cost projections, forecasts and annual report summaries.
“ Unfortunately, waiting for appointments and diagnostic procedures is standard practice in Canada’s public health care system. Disability Management services can alleviate the administrative burden from your organization while guaranteeing exceptional results.”
At Eagle Bay Financial Services, we believe the key to reducing cost and lost time by prioritizing your organization and employees is critical for effective health management. Your team members` speedy recovery directly translates into an early and safe return to work.
Unfortunately, waiting for appointments and diagnostic procedures is standard practice in Canada’s public health care system. In response to this barrier, we would like to introduce you to one of our Disability management partners, TeksMed!
TeksMed Services Inc. is an industry leader with over 25 years of disability management experience. TeksMed offers Expedited Health Care with occupational and non-occupational programs at no additional cost. Early access to health care prevents any delays to diagnosis and treatment, which could otherwise impede the employee from returning to work safely and swiftly.
With this exceptional solution, your team will enjoy accelerated access to free diagnostic scans and specialist appointments. They will be supported throughout their recovery and receive additional coverage for services such as MRIs, CT scans, and specialist consultations.
In addition to the disability management programs, TeksMed also offers several wellness solutions for organizations to support their employees before absences occur:
QuikCare Thrive is an app-based mental wellbeing program that was developed to help employees build resilience to stress. Users can access mental health support, information and coping techniques anytime and anywhere.
QuikCare Platinum is an employee benefit that can help workers avoid taking time off work by giving them expedited access to health care. Should one of your employees be suffering from a medical condition causing them stress or, perhaps, worry is developing into something that may require a leave of absence, TeksMed can proactively intervene to arrange for diagnostic scans or specialist appointments in a mere matter of days.
We are thrilled to have a strong relationship with TeksMed and happy to offer their services to our valuable clients. TeksMed shares our commitment to expert knowledge, unparalleled services, integrity, and confidentiality.
