1 An innovative approach to Group Income Protection PROACTIVE PROTECTION FROM METLIFE YOUR GUIDE TO MAKING A CLAIM
2 2 PROACTIVE PROTECTION FROM METLIFE With ongoing proactive support from an experienced team Our approach to claims management is about being proactive and providing you with practical solutions for your business. When claims are notified after the end of the deferred period, it can already be too late to take any preventative action. At MetLife, we work with you to gain sight of absences early on, in order to trigger intervention as soon as it s needed. This will help you to: avoid long-term sickness absence, and the resulting disruption and costs to the business reduce the instance of claims lessen the potential for unexpectedly declined claims, as any issues will be highlighted early on in the process. Your Client Relationship team We understand how vital it is to have helpful, reliable contacts throughout your policy, to answer any questions you may have. That s why you ll have the back-up of your Client Relationship Manager and supporting team, who will proactively keep in touch with you on a regular basis to identify any absences. We re here to support you and your employees, every step of the way If you do need to make a claim, your Claims Specialist will make sure everything runs smoothly from start to finish overseeing each stage, keeping you informed as the claim progresses and helping to make the process as quick and easy as possible. If an employee has to take a long absence from work due to illness or injury, you and they will be secure in the knowledge that their income is protected up to the agreed insured level. Your Client Relationship team and Claims Specialist will also work proactively with you and your employee to support them on their journey back into work where appropriate. Early intervention We ve teamed up with an independent company, Health Claims Bureau (HCB), to manage all early intervention activity. Its independence means it can focus solely on identifying and supporting an employee s ability to work. Our Claims Specialists will work closely with HCB to ensure that the most appropriate early intervention programme is implemented.

4 4 What to do if an employee is absent from work Making a claim Q. What happens if an employee becomes absent? A. If you have an absent employee it is important that you notify us as early as possible. This may be via your Intermediary or direct to the Claims Assessment team on We will then be able to make an initial assessment as to whether an early intervention assessment would be beneficial, or a claim can be made. Q. Why is early intervention so important? A. To get your employees back to work more quickly it is important to speak to your absent employee as soon as possible. Once you have spoken to your employee, you should get in touch with your MetLife contacts, who will then work with our partner HCB to progress early intervention that would be beneficial. The Rehabilitation Consultant can offer support and advice to employers and employees. This could include, for example, advice on any treatment required, return to work plans, offering flexible working and any job adaptations which may help a return to work. Please note that Early Intervention treatment applies only during the selected deferred period. Following the deferred period, we offer a similar service which you can read more about in Following a Claim on page 8. Q. When can I make a claim? A. You can make a claim if an employee has an illness or injury which is impacting their ability to work, under the definitions that you have chosen for your Group Income Protection policy with MetLife. Q. How do I make a claim? A. If you have an employee who may be off work for a prolonged period, please contact our MetLife claims team no later than four weeks after the start of your employee s absence from work. Your employee does not need to be totally absent from work to be able to claim. For example, if they are only able to work part-time or on reduced duties as a result of their illness or injury, we can still consider a claim. Q. When should I submit the claim forms? A. The sooner you can get the process started, the better and there s no need to wait until the expiry of the deferred period that you have chosen with your policy. The deferred period is the length of time an insured member must be continuously absent from work through illness or injury before any policy benefits will be considered. For example, if you have chosen a 26-week deferred period, we would not pay any benefit until the first day following 26 weeks of absence. If you have a 13-week deferred period we would like to receive your claim forms no later than six weeks after your employee s absence from work begins. If you have a deferred period of 26 weeks we would like to receive your claim forms no later than 13 weeks after your employee s absence from work begins, however, you should notify us as soon as possible so that we can consider Early Intervention.
5 5 How to claim The claims process Q. What forms do I need to complete, and what other documents will I need to submit? A. There are two forms to complete: 1. An Employer s claim form to be completed by you this form contains essential information we need to progress the claim. 2. An Employee s claim form to be completed by your employee this form contains essential information to allow us to understand their situation more fully. It also contains a consent form so that we can request medical information which would support the claim. And a Request for Medical Records form which allows us to access the case notes of the employee s general practitioner or attending consultant alongside the completed claim forms. You will also need to include the following documents: Copy of the employee s job description Q. How will MetLife process the claim? A. As soon we receive a claim, we pass the forms and supporting documentation to your dedicated Claims Specialist. The Claims Specialist starts the preliminary processing of the claim, including eligibility checking. Following their initial assessment, the Claims Specialist will request any additional evidence that may be required to assess the claim further. You will receive confirmation of the claim, along with any request for additional evidence as required. Q. What supporting information might be required? A. This would normally be a request for medical evidence from the attending general practitioner or Consultant. We might also request additional administrative or technical information. Once we receive this information, we will then re-assess the claim based on the new evidence. Absence records Proof of earnings this could be a copy of three pay slips prior to absence, or the most recent P60. Please refer to the policy schedule which defines salary and provide corresponding proof of earnings Any medical information you have on the employee, including any applicable Occupational Health reports. This can greatly speed up the assessment process.
6 6 TIMESCALES Q. How long does the initial assessment take? A. We will always attempt to make our initial decision as soon as possible, based on the information provided to us, as it is important to get the employee back to work as quickly as possible. However, there may be occasions where this is not possible in which case, we may need to request further evidence to consider the claim further. If we are unable to make a decision based on the evidence of the GP or Consultant, we may ask the employee to attend an Independent Medical Examination or Functional Capacity Assessment (please see top of following column). Q. How do MetLife make their decision? A. We gather all the available evidence to substantiate a claim against the definition of incapacity selected under the policy. Incapacity definition this is the definition we use to assess the claim. There are two choices available: Own occupation under this definition we will be assessing if your employee is unable to perform, due to sickness or injury, the material and substantial duties of the occupation they were performing before their incapacity (duties which are normally required for the performance of an occupation and cannot be reasonably modified). Own or suited occupation under this definition we will be assessing if your employee is unable to perform, due to sickness or injury, the material and substantial duties of the occupation they were performing before their incapacity, and any other reasonable occupation to which they are suited by reason of training, experience or education. As part of our assessment we need to ascertain if your employee is unable to work, due to their condition, according to one of these policy definitions. Q. What happens if the employee needs to attend an Independent Medical Examination or Functional Capacity Assessment? A. Although this is not required in the majority of claims, in a case where the employee has not yet been seen by a Consultant or Specialist, or if we are unable to confirm the validity of the claim, we may ask the employee to attend an Independent Medical Examination or Functional Capacity Assessment. These assessments are expected to provide valuable information to enable us to be able to provide you with a full and fair decision on the claim. We work with a number of established service providers and can, if required, provide details of their credentials at the time of the referral. We aim to make the process as easy as possible for your employee and will liaise with them directly to arrange the appointment, which will be as near as possible to their home location. We will pay for all reasonable travel costs incurred by your employee in attending the appointment. Once we ve received the findings from this assessment we will be able to re-assess the claim and provide you with a full service. Q. How long does it take to process a claim? A. If the claim matches the terms of the policy, we aim to give you an initial decision before the deferred period ends, dependent on timely claims notification and availability of supporting information. With that in mind, we will process and assess each piece of evidence and respond to you within five working days of receipt. This will include our preliminary assessment when we receive the claim forms, and any re-assessment we may need to take following any additional evidence.
7 7 We will keep you informed throughout the process, and we will make sure you are always aware of what actions are outstanding on a claim. You ll receive an update every 14 days following the receipt and assessment of any new evidence. During this time, if you have any information relating to the employee that could help us, please do contact us. Regular, open communication ensures that claims are dealt with quickly and employees can get back to work as soon as possible. Q. How can I help with the claims process? A. You can help by: Making sure that all claim forms are fully completed and that these, together with any other documentation, are submitted to us in good time. Responding to any requests for additional evidence as quickly as possible. Follow up on medical requests we will of course chase any outstanding information on a regular basis, but you can also help in the assessment of the claim by asking your employee to follow up with their GP to progress any medical requests. Q. What happens if my employee is overseas? A. With all claims we require access to information that enables us to complete our assessment and understand all the issues relevant to your employee s absence from work. We are equipped to work with medical professionals overseas in order to obtain information needed to validate the claim. We do require that information to be available to us in English and at a reasonable cost. There will be occasions where this is not possible, and we might therefore require your employee to return to the UK to attend a medical examination so that we can assess the claim. In this situation we will be happy to make arrangements direct with your employee. We will also pay all reasonable travel costs once in the UK but will not pay for any costs travelling to and from the UK or for accommodation in the UK. Where your employee is able to return to work we will not continue the claim purely because your employee resides in a different country from the required work location. In our experience most delays occur while waiting for GP and Consultant information. We have found that when an employee chases this information directly it often leads to our request being turned around more quickly. We would therefore be grateful if you could make your employee aware of any medical requests, and ask them to follow this up with their medical practitioner.
8 8 CLAIM DECISION Following a claim Q. If the claim is accepted, how are benefit payments made? A. We make claim payments monthly in arrears to you, the employer, by direct credit into the nominated bank account. We prefer to make payments by direct credit, which in our experience is more secure, quicker and avoids any payments being lost. If applicable, any outstanding benefit will be backdated to the claim commencement date. Q. What happens if the claim is declined? A. If a claim is declined, we will telephone you and explain our decision. We will follow this up in writing to provide you with a full and thorough explanation as to why we have made the decision. We will also provide you with full details of what options are available to you should you wish to appeal the decision. Q. If claims are reviewed, how and when will this take place? A. If a claim is accepted, we will send you a letter confirming this, which will include details of when we plan to medically review the claim and what evidence we will ask for. We periodically review all claims to assess if your employee has shown any improvement. If so, we may be able to help them get back to work with the Rehabilitation team. We review claims on a case-by-case basis in line with the medical evidence we have received. Our review would normally start with a request for an update from either the employee or from the GP, but we may need to obtain further evidence to support the claim. Q. What happens when my employee is ready to come back to work? A. We recognise that returning to work after a period of absence can be challenging. If the employee is in a position to return to work, our expert Rehabilitation team at HCB will help support them in taking that next step. The Rehabilitation team will liaise with you, your employee and their GP, to help facilitate a successful return to work and overcome any barriers that may be preventing the employee from returning to the workplace. Q. What if an employee is unable to return to their contracted role? A. If an employee is unable to return to their contracted role, during or after the end of the deferred period, we can consider reduced income benefit. The deferred period will need to be completed before the benefit becomes payable. If it can be medically supported, we would encourage the employee to return to work in a reduced capacity or in a different role. If the employee receives a reduced income for the work they are doing, then a reduced income benefit will be payable. This benefit will support the employee financially on their return to the workplace, while keeping the incentive to return to their contracted role if/when they are able to.

10 10 CASE STUDIES Examples of how our claims process can work in practice Case study 1 John, an Account Manager for a Telesales team After the loss of a family member, John went absent from work. His GP diagnosed a bereavement reaction then, after four weeks, amended this to a depressive illness and prescribed medication. John s employer referred the case to the MetLife Claims Specialist, who arranged for an HCB specialist to visit John and discuss his situation. The visit highlighted that not only was John finding it difficult to cope with his bereavement, but he was also worried about going back to work and meeting his targets while not feeling 100%. John felt he needed more time off, supported by his GP, who was also discussing counselling for which there was a two-month waiting list. The MetLife Claims Assessment team were concerned that this situation had the potential to progress from a short-term issue to one of longer-term absence, and took a proactive approach to help: Counselling was followed up with work-focused Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), to provide John with life management and coping skills. The HCB specialist devised a graded return to work plan over 10 weeks - managing hours worked, tasks accomplished and goal setting. John successfully progressed to full duties and tasks. The MetLife-funded CBT continued for four weeks after John s return to work, to provide him with longerterm, sustainable skills. All activity was completed within the policy deferred period. The HCB specialist contacted the employer to discuss John s role and possible adjustments, and it was agreed that John could return without the expectations of sales targets for a set period. With agreement from John s GP, MetLife arranged immediate counselling via the Health Gateway and EAP service.
11 11 Case study 2 Jane, a Production Operative Jane works as a Production Operative on a food processing line in a factory. Her role involves a lot of repeated physical movements in just a few postures. When Jane went to her GP with back and neck problems, he diagnosed mechanical back pain and advised painkillers as needed and rest. Jane s employer referred the case to the MetLife Claims Specialist, who arranged for an HCB specialist to visit Jane and discuss her injury. The HCB specialist found that Jane was finding it difficult to cope with the role and her normal daily activities. Jane believed that her role had caused her symptoms and a return to work would worsen her health. The MetLife Claims Specialist team were concerned that Jane s situation could move from a short-term absence into something longer term. Taking a proactive approach, the HCB specialist contacted Jane s employer to discuss her role and consider adjustments: The specialist also encouraged Jane to ask her GP to refer her for a short course of physiotherapy to assist with core strengthening exercises. This was arranged within two weeks. The assessments showed that Jane had the capacity to start work part-time and build up her hours. It was also suggested that Jane would benefit from changing postures at work. The HCB specialist devised an eight-week return to work plan - and also provided Jane with guidance on how to manage her work tasks with a variety of movements and postures. Jane was back to work on 75% of her hours at the end of the deferred period. MetLife paid the claim on a proportionate basis for four weeks, while Jane progressed to full hours. A review was arranged to determine the true demands of Jane s job, and compare these with Jane s functional capacity. To achieve this, the HCB specialist arranged for a full workstation analysis plus ergonomic profile - and actioned a referral to gain an objective assessment of Jane s capacity.
