Often companies will hire physicians or nurses whose clinical background is excellent, but who have little or no experience assessing function as it relates to disability. In addition, at times organizations have limited resources to spare for in-depth training. Hiring these valuable medical resources is an expensive but crucial investment and appropriate training is essential to ensure the integrity of their work. Hiring and training claims professionals is just as important to make certain claims are being approved and paid accurately. PDA offers training and support services tailored to each client’s needs to empower all claims resources to perform at their full potential.
