Advice to Pay
Many employers are taking a more strategic approach to absence management and looking for partners to assist them in achieving their goals. Organizations with highly-effective absence management programs are more likely to lower their health care costs, levels of presenteeism, overall days absent, claims incidence and levels of turnover.
Banyan’s Advice to Pay and Case Management Services provides employers with assistance in adjudication and the management of employee absence during the self-insured Short Term Disability (STD) period. Banyan delivers an objective assessment and adjudication of medical, contractual, functional and occupational information, along with recommendations concerning entitlement to disability benefits. We review all of the claim and medical information and make recommendations whether the absence is medically / functionally supported, advising of optimum absence duration, and providing further recommendation with regard to return to work (RTW) planning. Banyan brings you a full end-to-end claims management solution with ongoing recommendations for payment of benefits, and active management of the claim including managing the return to work process.
In collaboration with relevant stakeholders, it is our goal to facilitate a reduced claim duration and early return to work, which translates into reduced costs while at the same time ensuring sensitivity to your employees and alignment to all relevant legislative requirements.
