Several of the Disability carriers include a full or partial benefit to pay for assistive devices, especially as part of a reasonable accommodation request. Also, Workers’ Compensation carriers can provide a benefit as part of a Stay-at-Work or Return-to-Work plan. Even if you do not have an active disability or workers’ compensation claim, if your physician has or will document your disability status, you have the opportunity to submit a reasonable accommodation request with your Human Resources representative.
The key is for your physician to document that, in order for you to stay at work or return to work, your work restrictions require a workstation that accommodates full flexibility in the headrest, backrest and leg rest adjustment, including the ability to lie flat if needed. If you need additional information to support your claim, feel free to contact us or connect us with your claims manager. We are happy to support you and we prioritize customers who are managing injuries and disabilities, as we take great pride in the impact Altwork has had on individuals who are eager to stay at or return to work.
