If you have ever gone through the workers comp claims process you are likely familiar with the role of a qualified rehabilitation consultant. However, for those who have never experienced the work injury process, a qualified rehabilitation consultant may be a completely new term. In this article we are going to talk about qualified rehabilitation consultants and their role in the work comp process.
What is a Qualified Rehabilitation Consultant?
A qualified rehabilitation consultant (or QRC for short) is an independent professional whose job it is to help injured workers return to their jobs in a timely manner after their injury.
Having a QRC after your injury is a benefit guaranteed to injured workers in Minnesota. The injured employee has the right to choose their own qualified rehab specialist, but many injured workers simply don’t want to go through the trouble of finding a good QRC. In that case, the insurance company will assign a QRC to the employee. This may seem convenient, but it can work against the injured employees best interests. QRCs appointed by your employer’s insurance company are working for the insurance company and doing everything they can to keep their costs down – which can negatively impact an employees benefits.
