Though no employer wants their employees out on disability, it does happen. The absence of your employee decreases productivity and increases operations expenses, and the longer they are out, the more it costs your business. That is why Spooner has developed Integrated Disability Management services for Ohio employers to help them reduce the duration of disability claims.
At Spooner, our Integrated Disability Management services include workers comp, FLMA, and short-term/ long-term disability claims all in one service. This means that we handle all of these types of claims for you, allowing you to have a single source to go to in regard to employee disability management.
Most employers rely on their human resource departments to manage these claims. However, this can be a very daunting task for one person or one department who has other responsibilities as well.
At Spooner, we have several professionals in our office that provide these services for you. We immediately assign you a nurse case manager for early intervention and aggressive medical case management.
Many Ohio employers are worried about Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act violations, also known as HIPPA violations. When dealing with FMLA and/or short-term disability, it could be for a variety of reasons, and if cancer is one of them, it becomes very complicated. Most employers don't want to get involved with that because of the potential risks from HIPPA. But Spooner is able to handle that and keep them safe from any violations.
There are many steps to making sure that you, as an Ohio employer, are getting your employees the services that they need while also making sure you are covering your business's needs as well. It can be easy to make mistakes which can be very consequential.
If you are an Ohio employer and you need someone to help you manage your employee disability claims, contact us at Spooner today. Our Integrated Disability Management services are the most effective return-to-work service in the industry.
