Claims & Leave Management

Solutions for Managing Employee Absence

From our clinical nurse intake to our sophisticated claims pathways model, claimants experience a seamless process. While The Hartford’s leave management services help employers relieve their burden of staying compliant and administering a growing number of leave laws.1

Clinical Nurse Intake

RNs and LPNs have the clinical experience to obtain necessary information at claim initiation to document an accurate clinical impression. This efficient model facilitates speedier claim decisions and helps create a better claimant experience and satisfaction, as evidenced by our claimant satisfaction ratings of 96 percent.2

Advantages of Clinical Intake by Nurses

A claim intake process that begins with an experienced nurse can help improve return-to-work outcomes.

Integrated Leave and Claim Process

We provide a single/clinical intake and combined handler model for concurrent Short-term Disability (STD) and Leave, and follow up with integrated correspondence. This process helps provide employees with clear communications and a less stressful claim experience.

Enhanced Claims Pathways Model

Our sophisticated claim system will automatically triage — based on diagnosis and/or CPT codes — and assign claims to the appropriate Ability Analyst segment for intervention and case management as needed. This approach allows The Hartford to focus on claims that have transferable skills and return to work plans.
