See Ann Eubank’s latest entry on From the Roots: Clinician’s Blog, and sound off with your own comments on this interactive forum for clinicians and disability advocates. Ann offers inspiration and insight about important topics from using the vital language of the letter of medical necessity (LMN) as a force for good to fulfilling the role of trusted advisor to individuals affected by a disability. The blog is sponsored by TiLite.
In a recent post, Ann squares off with the jarring unemployment among individuals affected by a disability. Recent statistics indicate that just 17.8% of individuals with disabilities are employed, compared to a 63.9% employment-population among individuals without disabilities.
Ann also takes the opportunity to emphasize the increasing importance of reinforcing the clinical backup necessary to battle against insurance companies. Eubank reminds readers that despite the obstacles, “Nothing is over until we decide it is.”
Whether it is raising awareness of employment disparities between individuals with disabilities and those without, or using wise judgment based on client needs to act and formulate a successful LMN, Eubank emphasizes how vital it is to educate others and to be relentless.
