Mitchell MCN’s independent medical experts assist in the adjudication and settlement of disability claims with detailed and objective reports and testimony when required.
How we help
For more than 30 years, Mitchell MCN has been an industry leader in disability evaluation and absence management services and related exams and reviews. We serve a variety of clients including long-term and short-term disability carriers, pension funds, and human resources professionals. We house a special disability unit within our National Operations office.
From the initial exam scheduling to provider recruiting/orientation to our Report Review team, all affiliated staff are trained on the unique requirements of disability and absence management services.
Programs can be tailored to meet client needs and may include the following services:
- Long-Term Care Reviews
- Fitness for Duty Exams
- Second Opinion Exams
- Return-to-Work Determinations
- Third Medical Opinions
- Early Assessments
- Functional Capacity Evaluations
- Americans with Disability Act ("ADA") Reviews.
Additionally, many clients who order these services also order:
- Medical Director Reviews
- Utilization Reviews
- Nurse Reviews
- Family Medical Leave Act ("FMLA") Reviews
- Accidental Death and Dismemberment Reviews.
From among its nationwide panel of providers, we work with a subset of providers trained on the unique concerns related to disability claims. After undergoing Mitchell MCN’s URAC-accredited credentialing process, each provider is briefed on completing peer-to-peer contact and answering questions on return-to-work abilities (functional impairment), work restrictions and limitations, and disability determinations.
