Aetna White Paper

An Effective, Cost-Efficient Solution to Help Employees Get Back to Work

In a recent series of white papers, Aetna has been exploring issues surrounding disability, particularly in which many people who qualify for disability under their employers’ disability policies continue to have functional work capabilities. Where is the line drawn? Where does service become a disservice if the “disabled” aren’t given an opportunity to return to the workforce?

The mission and role of disability insurers has essentially been redefined from one of issuing checks to one of assisting “disabled” individuals to rejoin society as full participants and contributors. This white paper examines the vocational rehabilitation process, its success, statistics and financial benefits.
