Non-Integrated Program

Federal Leaves, State Leaves, ADAA, STD, LTD, Client Specific Leaves, and Workers Compensation – How does it all fit?

In a fast- moving, quickly evolving leave landscape, an IDM program you can rely on to manage compliance and concurrent leaves is key to future success in reducing absenteeism and getting employees back to health and productivity, quickly and safely.

A non-integrated disability management program presents several hurdles to this goal:

  • TTwo or more partner contacts, for both the HR team and Risk Teams, as well as employees with concurrent disability claims

  • Entitlement between lines of business can often overlap, making resolution between vendors time consuming and inefficient

  • Multiple forms containing identical information may have to be filled out and sent to various vendors

  • Employees dealing with multiple sources of information, which may conflict due to inconsistency of messaging

  • Data is housed in multiple systems, making actionable data able to be leveraged for impactful change in safety, ergonomics, or benefits much more difficult to obtain
