The Role of the Medical/Rehabilitation Team
The composition of your medical/rehab team depends on the type of injuries you have and the type of treatment you're receiving. Your medical/rehab team usually includes the health care practitioners who are working most closely with you, such as your doctor, chiropractor, physiotherapist, rehabilitation counselor and nurse practitioner, as well as your case manager, other Manitoba Public Insurance employees, members of your family and yourself.
You are the most important person on the medical/rehabilitation team. It's your commitment to recovery and to your Rehabilitation Plan that will be a deciding factor in whether or not a rehabilitation expense seems necessary and advisable.
The medical/rehabilitation team prepares a Rehabilitation Plan and recommends strategies that it believes will facilitate your independence and employment. Manitoba Public Insurance employees make the final decision on rehabilitation funding.
