Insurance Medical Examination
The Insurance medical doctor (Verzekeringsarts) performs an medical examination to identify permanent restrictions (permanent medical limitations), if an employee has been absent in his own work (his stipulated labor) due to illness for a prolonged period
The Register Labor Expert (Register Arbeidsdeskundige) can then perform an assessment determining if the employee is fit for his or her own work or perhaps for a different function. The Labor Expert will also calculate the disability percentage (Arbeidsongeschiktheid-percentage). The labor expert can also advise which adapted duties the employee can perform, at the current company or at a different company (outplacement).
