injured worker vocational rehabilitation flow chart

What is the role of a qrc?

In the state of Minnesota many injured workers are entitled to Statutory Rehabilitation Services. If an injured worker’s total disability exceeds 13 weeks, a registered Qualified Rehabilitation Consultant (QRC) is either assigned by the employer / insurer or chosen by the injured worker. Injured workers can choose their own independent QRC at no cost to them.

The QRC is governed by a plethora of statutes and regulations and is required to act as a neutral party. The QRC has the responsibility of developing and implementing a rehabilitation plan that is focused on returning the worker to suitable employment. QRCs communicate with all parties in a workers’ compensation claim, including the employee, doctors, the employer, the insurance adjuster, the insurer’s attorney, and the employee’s attorney if one has been retained.
