Step Care™

Step Care ™ is a unique treatment method providing a personal course of treatment customised to the individual employee who may have physical or psychological conditions.

Step Care ™ is a unique treatment method providing a personal course of treatment customised to individual employees experiencing physical or psychological problems. Step Care™ combines the treatment provided under the health insurance with the treatment offered to an employee on long-term absence due to illness. The employee will be assigned a coordinator throughout the course of treatment, and the course of treatment will be adjusted on an ongoing basis. This way, we can intensify the treatment gradually if necessary – depending on the employee’s individual needs.

To get the full benefits of Step Care™, your employees must have both health insurance and cover for loss of earning capacity with Danica Pension.

Coordinator throughout treatment

 


A coordinator ensures a great treatment programme

If the employee is to undergo a Step Care™ treatment programme, the employee will be assigned a coordinator. The coordinator will be either a psychologist or a physiotherapist, depending on the employee’s symptoms.

The coordinator will customise a personal treatment programme to fit the individual employee’s needs and coordinate cross-functional treatment, if needed. With a coordinator throughout the employee’s course of treatment, the employee is ensured the best possible treatment.

 

 

“Preliminary results show that 96.3% of those who are already absent due to illness when they begin their treatment programme will return to work at the end of their treatment.”
