Instructions to Insurer The Disability Status Report (DSR) is used to notify parties that you are either referring the injured worker for a rehabilitation consultation or requesting a waiver of the consultation. The DSR, with a Report of Work Ability (RWA), must be mailed to the injured worker and filed with the Department of Labor and Industry: · Within 14 calendar days of knowledge that the employee's temporary total disability is likely to exceed 13 cumulative weeks; or · Within 90 calendar days of the date of injury when the employee has not returned to work following a work injury; or · Within 14 calendar days after receiving a request for a rehabilitation consultation, whichever is earlier; or · Within 14 calendar days of expiration of an approved waiver of rehabilitation services. To Refer for a Rehabilitation Consultation: If you are referring the injured worker for a rehabilitation consultation, check Box 18A. Send a copy of the DSR form, the First Report of Injury and the treating physician's Report of Work Ability to the QRC prior to the consultation. Fill in the name of the QRC on the form and indicate which party requested the consultation. If the employee requested the consultation, fill in the date of the request. To Request a Waiver of a Rehabilitation Consultation: M.S. § 176.102, subd. 4 and Minn. Rules 5220.0110 and 5220.0120 provide that the commissioner may grant a waiver of a rehabilitation consultation to an otherwise qualified employee if there is documentation that the employee will return to suitable gainful employment with the date-of-injury employer within 90 calendar days after the request for waiver is filed. A waiver will not be granted unless documentation is submitted that a suitable job offer within the treating doctor's restrictions has been made. If you are requesting a waiver, check Box 18B and attach the following documentation: · Report of Work Ability or other medical report with the same information from the treating doctor which indicates that the employee will be released to return to work within 90 calendar days after the request for waiver is filed and specifying the employee's work restrictions in functional terms. · Written offer of suitable gainful employment signed by the employer that is within the treating doctor's restrictions to which the employee will return within the timeframe indicated above. Include one of the following: · If the employer is offering the employee his/her date-of-injury job, any modifications of the job to accommodate the employee's restrictions must be noted. If the written offer of suitable gainful employment (which does not include temporary, light-duty) is for a different job with the date-of-injury employer, the offer must include the job title, job environment, work tasks, weekly wage, physical, mental and educational demands of the job, and/or employer modifications of the job to accommodate the employee's restrictions.
Instructions to Employee If you do not agree with the insurer's recommendation for a rehabilitation consultation or a waiver of rehabilitation consultation, you may file a Rehabilitation Request with the Department of Labor and Industry. If you have questions call the Benefit Management and Resolution Unit at 1-800-342-5354 or 651-284-5032.
