Hand Therapy Program

When people have a work-related hand injury, we help them get the health care and rehabilitation services they need. This may include the services of the Hand Therapy Program providers in our network. Workers may have a referral from us or a physician, or may visit you on their own accord.

New report templates available

On May 1, 2023, we updated our report templates and reference manual for this program to reflect abilities-focused language, including new discharge status categories.

Please use the updated templates available in the Resources section below. To learn more, read the bulletin on abilities-focused language.
