Disability and loss of earning capacity cost private businesses and the social insurance providers a lot of money in Germany. It is particularly difficult for persons with impaired performance capacity to return to working life. To ensure that the available resources are used as efficiently as possible, the law-makers have re-calibrated the legal framework. In this context, consistent, start-to-finish case management promises high success rates. This can be achieved by private rehab services, as shown in this article.
