Announcing New Occupational Claims Management referral arrangement

In November 2014, Sun Life Financial entered into a new referral arrangement with Acclaim Ability Management to provide Occupational Claims Management solutions to our plan sponsors.  Acclaim can assist plan sponsors with managing incidents that occur in the workplace. These types of claim are often managed by an employer together with their provincial workers’ compensation board (WSIB, WCB, CSST) and can become costly and complicated.

Acclaim’s Occupational Claims Management service is well suited for clients who…

  • Have received a surcharge in workers’ compensation claims in the last 3-5 years
  • Have an increasing number of workers’ compensation claims
  • Have an increasing number of days lost for workers compensation claims
  • Have increasing costs related to compensation claims and are not sure why or what to do
  • Have a need to review and update their workers’ compensation and occupational health and safety policies and procedures

About Acclaim’s Occupational Claims Management service:

Through referral by Sun Life, Acclaim can provide plan sponsors with a customer focused service that offers a full range of Occupational Claims Management services, including tribunal work and appeals. It’s not a ‘one size fits all’ program – Acclaim offers an Occupational Claims Management assessment of the plan sponsor’s existing occupational injury management program. This allows Acclaim to build programs customized to the distinct needs of each client.

This referral arrangement also gives clients access to the pricing negotiated by Sun Life with Acclaim and aligns to Sun Life’s case management goals of an early and safe return to work.

Each program will be designed using services from the following suite:

  • Workers’ Compensation claims management
  • Workers’ Compensation appeals and cost relief
  • Classification review and revenue
  • Workers’ Compensation training for internal staff
  • Occupational health and safety services
