Independent Multidisciplinary and Catastrophic Assessments
Individual and personal assessments
Independent multidisciplinary assessments are an individualized multi-specialist team assessment process led by a medical coordinator in order to determine the level of impairment in complex injuries generally, as well as to determine entitlement to specified benefits.
The term “catastrophic,” as defined in the Ontario Statutory Accident Benefit Schedule (SABS) is used as a division for the most serious and permanently injured in order to access substantially enhanced benefits past the fixed periods assigned for “non-catastrophic” claimants.
Upon completion, each multidisciplinary assessment undergoes an executive summary process that produces a report compiled by a physician reviewer in order to provide the customer with an integrated overview of the findings from each specialist assessor and the overall implications of the findings in one report.
