VOCATIONAL RESOURCES PLUS ANNOUNCES LIFE CARE PLANNING SERVICES

DES MOINES, IA – Vocational Resources Plus, LLC  is launching a new service to help families and other organizations plan for long term health care needs by matching necessary care with the costs of providing that care.

The service, which produces an individual “Life Care Plan,” creates a guide to care that families can use to answer questions regarding future medical care and costs associated with an individual’s life-long healthcare needs.

And families aren’t the only ones to benefit from care planning that matches needs with costs. Insurance companies, law firms and others also need to know what care is necessary, and how much it will cost.

“With all the changes we are experiencing in healthcare service delivery, life care planning benefits individuals and companies involved in decision-making” says Vocational Resources Plus owner Amy Botkin. “We all want the most and the best, but there are costs attached to everything a patient needs”

“For example, litigated claims, when being addressed by a jury, need accurate information about care and costs to help in determining fair and equitable claims, payments and settlements.”

Botkin, a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor and Drake graduate, has partnered with Sharon Hamilton, RN, CNLP, to add Life Care Planning to the range of services already available through Vocational Resources Plus. Hamilton, a Certified Nurse Life Care Planner, sees another benefit.

“Life Care Planning services incorporate vocational rehabilitation into the care planning process. With Amy’s expertise in job placement, combined with trends in assistive technology, we are well equipped to return the person to gainful employment with an accountable cost structure. This helps the bottom line.”

Botkin has been providing vocational consultative services to the insurance and legal industry since 1999. Hamilton, a Registered Nurse, has more than 20 years experience in home care case management, including eight years focusing on persons with disabilities.

The life care planning process draws on three areas of practice: Worker Compensation, Personal Injury and Long Term Disability. Vocational Resources Plus, LLC consults with people who want help to address the intricacies of insurance claims in these areas.

For more information, please contact Amy E. Botkin at 515-282-7753 http://www.linkedin.com/in/amybotkin

Vocational Resources Plus, owned by Amy E. Botkin, identified the need for services in Des Moines, a major insurance center with nearly 60 life, health, and casualty companies.

Vocational Case Management

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Vocational case management is an integral component of the rehabilitation process to return the injured worker to suitable, gainful employment. For the best efficiency and efficacy, services should begin as soon as possible. Early intervention is a good practice, especially for small businesses.

If early intervention wasn’t established, once the physician releases the individual for return-to-work or rules out return-to-work with the same job and same employer, case management should kick into gear.

Make early intervention simple….once a worker files a claim, call a vocational case manager into action.
