What vocational rehabilitation services require authorization?

All vocational rehabilitation services must be preauthorized. For state fund claims, the department may make one or more of the following type of referrals: Early intervention; ability to work assessment ("AWA" or "assessment"); plan development; plan implementation; forensic services; or stand alone job analysis. Each referral is a separate authorization for vocational rehabilitation services. Option 2 vocational services are considered authorized for state fund and self-insured claims once the department accepts the worker's election of Option 2. However, the services can only be provided upon request from the worker to the vocational provider.
