  • The 5th annual PDA Spring 2014
    Disability Education conference was held May 1-2 in Portland ME. Over 85 peoplerepresenting 17 companies, along with PDA staff and consultants attended. This review of the current state of the disability insurance industry considered how outside factors like The Affordable Healthcare Act, Social Security changes and regulatory rules impact our work. Specific disabilities like Lyme’s Disease, cardiac issues and back injuries were reviewed to help increase understanding on how to best assist claimants with these challenging conditions. Psychosocial factors were also explained in order to better understand and assist the out-of-work claimant facing real life challenges. For professionals working in disability insurance, best practices were presented including critical thinking skills, ethical issues and legal liabilities. Conference participants also learned why attending physician calls are important to medical reviews, vocational services and other areas of claims management. Sponsorship for this year’s conference was generously provided by Advocator Group, Munich Re, and ClaimVantage.
