The job should be physically appropriate and produce an economic status as close as possible to that which you would have enjoyed without disability. The first step in this return-to-work process is a rehabilitation consultation, an in-person or telephone meeting with a qualified rehabilitation consultant (QRC) to determine if you qualify for rehabilitation services. If the QRC determines you are qualified, the next step is the development of a rehabilitation plan. Your QRC will help you develop and implement this plan and explain the rehabilitation services available to you. Consideration will be given to your former employment, average weekly wage, the current labor market and your qualifications, including transferable skills, previous work history, age, education and interests. You will not be billed for rehabilitation services. Rights of the injured worker Under Minnesota workers' compensation law, you have vocational rehabilitation rights. · You may obtain a list of registered QRCs in your area by visiting the department's website at www.dli.mn.gov/WC/QrcData.asp. For a rehabilitation consultation, the insurer may refer you to a QRC or you may choose your own. If you did not choose the QRC for your consultation, you have up to 60 days after a rehabilitation plan is filed to request a different QRC. You may be entitled to change QRCs at other times as well; call the Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) unit at (651) 284-5032 or 1-800-342-5354 if you would like more information. When a QRC first meets or writes to contact you, he or she is required to disclose to you in writing any affiliation or ownership interest between the QRC (or the QRC firm) and your employer, any workers' compensation insurer or adjusting company. The QRC is also required to disclose to you and all parties to a case any affiliation or business referral arrangement, documented or not, between the QRC (or the QRC firm) and any other parties to the case, including attorneys and doctors. A vocational rehabilitation plan may include training and/or formal education. You may request a change in your rehabilitation plan. Your QRC needs your permission to: attend, schedule or cancel medical appointments; discuss your medical care and treatment with your health care providers; or obtain medical records from your health care providers. You may withdraw your permission for your QRC to: attend, schedule or cancel medical appointments; discuss your medical care and treatment with your health care providers; or obtain medical records from your health care providers.
