CareWorks Absence Management’s services are designed to work together or independently and are customized to each employer’s unique circumstances.

We simplify the administration of your disability-related programs by providing a personalized, clinical approach to your employees.

We work directly with employers to develop case-specific, cost-effective return-to work plans.

What we offer

Short-Term Disability Management

Short-term disability claims can significantly impact an employer’s bottom line through increased expenses and decreased productivity. Our claims management approach and return-to-work process help minimize the disruption short-term disability claims can cause.

Long-Term Disability Management

When appropriate, we help manage the transition form from short-term disability to long-term disability. Our claims experts interact with medical providers, as well as clinical and vocational specialists, to resolve claims and simplify the return-to-work process.
