Session Title: Don’t Get Stuck at the Intersection of Workers’ Compensation and the ADA Disability Interactive: Strategies to Reduce Claim Costs and Timelines
Session Description: Injured workers who meet the ADA’s definition of an “individual with a disability” enter the disability interactive process, regardless of whether they satisfy criteria for receiving benefits under workers’ compensation or other disability laws. This intersection of processes, rules and law can be frustratingly slow for all parties involved. Rachel Shaw will show you how to get “unstuck” when common roadblocks pop up – and, shed light on opportunities to reduce claim costs and create timeline efficiencies. Session will also explore how you can use Light Duty Agreements, create TTD questionnaires to evaluate if continued leave is reasonable, the value of Essential Function Position Analyses and how to make sure you get what you need from QME and AME providers.
