IARP Report

IARP Report Submitted 11-08-2017

We have been keeping tabs on the statistics as they relate to Vocational Rehabilitation services for many years. We have been told VR “costs a lot of $” and we keep on looking at what the statistics say. The statistics however say otherwise. The vocational rehabilitation services statistics cost in percentages continually decreased over the past 20 years. The numbers of cases that enter VR services have decreased every year. As of 2015, VR services cost 1.53% of the total cost $290,000,000. So we ask you to review what we have put together here and you be the judge.

We have continually placed injured workers successfully and those numbers have increased! So we ask for your support of these services for the injured workers to assure that they are able to be supported to return to work and return to productivity.
