Disability / Case Management

NYRC’s team of medical specialists, Psychologists, Physiotherapists, Chiropractors, Social Worker and Occupational Therapists recognize the importance of case management initiatives to reduce long-term disability by focusing on early intervention and return-to-work strategies.

Complex Disability Management

NYRC believes the key to effective wellness and disability management is a combination of prevention and appropriate intervention. With years of experience, we have been able to case manage catastrophically injured individuals with multiple orthopaedic injuries, chronic pain, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries as well as serious psychiatric impairments.  The Case Manager coordinators are responsible for organizing and leading a team of medical and rehabilitation professionals to assist with the return to work strategy and/or activities of daily living while providing ongoing support for the individuals.

Long-Term Disability (LTD)

Understanding Residual Capacity Utilization

NYRC’s Long-Term Disability Assessments will generate reasonably suited occupational clusters based on their level of education, experience and training to determine whether or not they are able to return to work. If an injured individual remains disabled long term, a residual capacity assessment will determine any loss of income from their pre-accident employment.

Psychological Disability Management

NYRC performs psychological, neuropsychological and psychiatric paper review assessments in order to provide an opinion on causality, treatment that is reasonable and necessary, ability to return to work and to recommend a return-to-work strategy.  In conjunction with the work strategy, an occupational cluster is identified based on the individual’s education, experience and training. This is done through our comprehensive Psychological Vocational Assessment in correlation with the Functional Capacity Evaluations to determine the claimant’s current level of functional ability.
