Kids’ Chance Awareness Week runs from November 9th to the 13th. This special event was started in 2014 to provide a national platform to increase visibility for the Kids’ Chance mission. This week allows Kids’ Chance and its partners, like Coventry, to highlight and raise awareness of this ever-growing organization that provides educational opportunities and scholarships for children affected by workplace injuries.
Coventry is a proud supporter of Kids’ Chance of America and actively participates with many of the organization’s state chapters. About 18 months ago we created a first of its kind Catastrophic Care Referral Program designed to refer affected parties directly to Kids’ Chance. The program provides a monthly report that flags eligible cases where the injured worker is gravely injured or killed in the course of a work-related accident.
Our Case Managers are prompted to contact the adjuster, the injured worker, or a responsible family member to refer them to Kids’ Chance. In the past seven months we have already identified over 700 potential referrals.
