The Benefits of Rehabilitation Services

Rehabilitation Services is available to HBT member organizations and their employees entitled to Long Term Disability (LTD) Benefits. With appropriate rehabilitation and support, many employees are able to remain at work or return to gainful employment earlier.

Rehabilitation can start any time after the employee and their health care provider agree it is medically appropriate. Rehabilitation should begin as early as possible to increase the chances of a successful return to gainful employment.

Rehabilitation Services accepts referrals from employees, employers, Union representatives, and Canada Life.

Rehabilitation Services benefits employees by:

  • Helping employees remain at work and/or return to gainful employment sooner
  • Providing employees with services to promote recovery

Rehabilitation Services benefits the employer by:

  • Reducing the duration of workplace absences
  • Preventing/mitigating LTD claims
  • Avoiding and reducing the length of LTD claims which results in lowering disability and Health Benefits costs
  • Increasing workplace productivity
  • Supporting the delivery of Early Intervention and Enhanced Disability Management Programs
