AMA Guides® to Navigating Disability Benefit Systems is an introduction to the basic principles and practices that lead to the best outcomes for patients at early stages of an encounter with worklessness. Written for front-line health care professionals who do not have specialized training in evaluating patients with respect to work capacity, this book will help navigate unfamiliar disability systems with greater ease.

Confusion about how to deal with disability benefit systems does not simply frustrate health care professionals and their patients; it leads to poor health outcomes.

Designed to provide relevant information for those health professionals looking for an introduction to disability systems and how to navigate them. Features include:

  • Fundamental principles of disability evaluations and causation analysis
  • Guidance for navigating common forms, family medical leave, public and private disability, and workers’ compensation systems
  • An introduction to disability evaluation as it interfaces with the legal system
