OCCUPATIONAL DISABILITY MANAGEMENT
Our Occupational team members are Workers’ Compensation Specialists who are experts at advocating on your behalf and are focused on costs and risks reduction. We file your forms and handle appeals and tribunals in every province. We provide professional review of your WCB situation to help you develop a plan to prevent and reduce your current and future WCB/WSIB costs.
RETURN TO WORK TO REDUCE TIME LOST
We support our clients through the return to work process with the goal of mitigating time lost. We do so by creating return to work plans for your employees and by reviewing your Physical Demands Analysis to find suitable modified duties. If you do not have Physical Demands Analysis, we can support you through our assessment division which can also preform Functional Abilities Evaluations and Ergonomic Assessments.
Wellpoint advocates on behalf of our customers and we may recommend appealing WCB decisions. We can also prepare your submission and represent you at tribunals. We employ Paralegals, Case Managers, and Occupational Specialists to help reduce your costs.
COMMUNICATION AND REPORTING
We pride ourselves in having a reputation of being highly responsive and easily accessible. Each Case Manager has a toll free direct telephone number, so they can be reached by both the employee or the employer. We ensure the employer is always made aware of a change to case status and when to expect an employee to return to modified or full duties. Our software allows each employer to view the real-time status of open and closed cases and allows for detailed reporting.
