Psychological-vocational assessment

As part of helping injured workers return to work, our Vocational Rehabilitation Services team may refer clients for psychological vocational (psycho-vocational) assessments. We enter into long-term contracts with providers of these services. As part of the contract, we require a specific report before making payment.

Description of services

Clients who are referred to you for psycho-vocational assessment are working with our vocational rehabilitation consultants to identify options for their return to work. They have unique circumstances that require specialized vocational testing.

As a qualified psychologist, you'll identify and administer appropriate tests to provide information about the worker's aptitudes, vocational interests, personality, and academic abilities. You may also be asked to provide learning disability testing.

Submitting reports

Once you've completed the assessment, we'll need a full report of your findings. Please use our Vocational Rehabilitation Services Psycho-Vocational Assessment Report Cover Sheet Form 65D40 and submit your report using our Provider Portal. You will need to refer to the contract you sign with us for specifics about what to include in the report and how to submit it.

Please note that we can't process your invoice until we've received your report.
