Integrated Disability Management for Insurance Professionals

By way of definition, integrated disability or IDM is a coordinated approach to administration, management of information, managed medical and disability services, claim payment, and communication of all benefits available to employees. This course will focus on the various types of voluntary and statutory disability benefits available to employees. An IDM strategy, when adopted, can work to reduce the overall cost of disability to an employer. It can also be the catalyst for developing and implementing policies and procedures for managing leaves of application. The consistent application of coordinated and integrated policies can also work to avoid the potential pitfalls of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

During this workshop, we will discuss the following:
Sick leave policies
• Short and long term disability coverage
Disability pension and retirement
Workers’ compensation
State disability insurance, where applicable
Social Security Disability Income Benefits Through the use of a case study, we will also review the interplay between voluntary and statutory benefits.

2 Hour CE Class

Date: Wednesday, April 4
Time: 12pm Eastern
