When multiple services, such as medical management and network management are purchased from Colonial Cooperative Care, customers benefit from:
- A single point of access for services, via one telephone number
- Opportunity to identify “at risk” consumers and direct them into case management, disease management or other appropriate intervention
- Access to an RN for handling varied issues and directing the caller appropriately
Colonial Cooperative Care offers a flexible network of physicians, specialists, hospitals and specialty care facilities in Connecticut and Rhode Island. The extent of the CCC network ensures convenient and consistent provider access and assists employers in reducing their overall health care costs.
Colonial Cooperative Care can assist employers and insurers in better managing both the medical and disability components of lost-time claims. Our experience has shown us that, regardless of how an injury or illness is incurred, individuals receive better care, improve more quickly and return to productivity and the workplace sooner when their care or “situation” is systematically managed. We do this through our case management services.
Colonial Cooperative Care can also provide an employer with a panel of Impartial Medical Examiners who can conduct a hands on examination for disability or return to work as well as the availability of Nurse, Vocational and Physician Examiners who can review medical documents for Social Security or State Benefit eligibility. The program is focused on the ability to work, with extent and duration of disability taken into consideration.
Colonial Cooperative Care is expert in the application of federal criteria used to determine disability and has access to a variety of multi-specialty physicians to conduct examinations or provide a peer review of medical records.
