Specialty rehabilitation services used by disability insurers to enhance employee return-to-work outcomes can result in a return on investment ranging from about $3 saved for every $1 spent to $57 saved for every $1 spent, according to survey results from Reinsurance Group of America Inc. The survey titled “Rehabilitation Services and Disability Insurance: A Global Analysis of Utilization and Value” also reveals that claimant motivation is a top factor in predicting successful return-to-work outcomes, while workplace stress decreases motivation.
