Short-term disabilities don't last as long at organizations where em-ployees report their disability claims quickly, a new report indicates.
CIGNA Group Insurance found that organizations whose claims are reported within the seven-day elimination period, a period of time between the date the disability begins and the beginning of benefit payments, averaged shorter short-term disability leaves (by 10 days) than employers whose claims were reported 15 days or more after the disability occurred.
CIGNA says prompt reporting gives disability case managers more time to work with the employee's physician on the best ap-proach, plus more time to arrange a smoother transition back to work.
