When it Comes to Mental Health, Insurers Can't Get it Wrong. Insurers Need Mind Right

Blogpost Hero Image

The insurance industry’s changing…

You’ll have seen it yourself.

Insurers like you are finding that they’re often liable for ongoing psychological treatments with no fixed end date. Sometimes with unclear outcomes. Treatments managed by professionals with the best of intentions, but without the structures and systems needed to ensure the best possible results for everyone involved. ‘Not quite right’ ways of working leading to ‘not quite right’ outcomes.

Largely, physical rehabilitation providers already understand how to work with the insurance industry - how to stay focused on symptoms linked to the index injury and offer the best clinical opinion and guidance. It’s relatively straight forward for insurers to work with doctors, surgeons and physiotherapists. Insurers can effectively instruct physical treatment providers to get people involved in an accident back on their feet, back into work, back to normality.

When it comes to mental health provision, many psychological treatment providers simply don’t understand the way the insurance world works, meaning that through no fault of its own, much of the insurance industry finds itself behind the curve.

Mental Health providers need to understand the needs of Insurers

We’ve seen the research.

50% of all road traffic collisions leave claimants with some sort of anxiety or mood change*- mental health issues that need psychological intervention and rehabilitation.

Yet insurers quite often find themselves struggling to find a provider that will handle these cases correctly. They don’t always have the right approach to intervention, leading to sub-optimal treatment plans being implemented by well-meaning professionals who don’t understand what insurers really need. They can deliver great treatment but don’t understand the landscape of the personal injury world, which means their treatment and goals need to be laser focused. They don’t always have the experience to deliver the right outcomes.

It’s true for road traffic collisions, it’s true for incidents in the workplace, it’s true for any situation where a personal injury claim includes a psychological or mental health element.

It often leads to a spiral of escalating costs, of treatments with no clear end goal or pathway to recovery, of poorer outcomes for claimants, for employers and of course for insurers themselves.

Nobody is to blame. Psychological and mental health is a fast-moving sector that’s undergoing a huge cultural shift. Things need to change, but insurers aren’t yet equipped to manage a psychological health revolution. And nor should they be.

They shouldn’t be forced to find the right ways of handling mental health rehabilitation and claims through trial and error.

They need guidance.

They need expertise.

They need Mind Right.

Mind Right doesn’t advance the interests of insurers at the expense of the patient’s recovery. And nor do we need to.
