Transitional Work Exploration
Transitional work provides employers an effective tool for claims cost control. It reduces employer claim expenses such as hiring temporary personnel during sustained periods of employee absence, lost time, temporary disability benefits/ medical costs and may reduce litigation. A job description and task list is developed with the employer to document the proposed transitional position available. This provides the physician(s) an accurate description of the physical tasks and requirements of the proposed position to determine medical appropriateness. Upon physician approval, a return to work date is coordinated with all parties. The “Notice of Offer of Modified or Alternative Work”/DWC AD 10133.53 EAMS form is also prepared to adhere to the State of California guidelines. The completed documents / packet are e-mailed to the Claims Examiners and/or Claims Assistants so that proper time frames are met.
