Consulting Module #2

STD-to-LTD Transition

Are too many STD claims - or not the right type - transitioning to LTD and increasing incurred claim incidence? How about the timing…is your process leaving you with the feeling that some STD claims are transitioning prematurely or too late?

PDA Offering

PDA will evaluate the tactical process of initiating a referral to LTD, establishing the optimal timing of the transfer – not too early (unnecessarily burdening LTD resources) or too late (forcing LTD resources to play “catch up”).
