MetLife will roll out a new rehabilitation program to help accelerate the recovery of claimants.
In a statement issued by the life insurer, MetLife said the Reactivate Program will be rolled out across its national network to assist claimants with debilitating psychological and physical conditions.
“Developed by Ian Stephens of enRich Training & Development, the Reactivate Program is purpose-designed to help people on claim avoid long-term incapacity by giving them the confidence and skills necessary to regain control over their lives,” the statement from MetLife said.
MetLife chief operating officer Luke Banfield said the program is an alternative approach to managing disability claims.
“We’re confident it will deliver both short- and long-term benefits for claimants, such as improved motivation, life skills and the confidence to return to employment,” Mr Banfield said.
“In many cases, with proper care and rehabilitation, people suffering from long-term disability are able to regain independence, return to work and contribute again to society. That is a far better outcome for the individual and for our community at large,” Mr Banfield said.
“We have been very impressed by the Reactivate program and the impact it has had on the participants who have a strong desire to become an active member of their community again,” he said.
