Home & Vehicle Modifications

Rebuilding Independence for the Injured Worker

The timely and safe installation of cost effective high quality home and vehicle modifications require coordinated communication between adjusters, case managers, injured workers and service providers.

MTI’s Home and Vehicle Modifications team, as part of our extensive quality assurance and credentialing programs and overall management process, provides extensive oversight on vendor selection, scope of work, quality of service and cost effectiveness.

Home Modification

A Residential Risk Assessment (RRA) is the first important step in the home modifications process. The RRA is an important tool to successfully manage long-term catastrophic claimant costs. It identifies and qualifies all known long-term liability exposure costs given the claimant’s prognosis and current physical condition of the claimant’s residence.

Vehicle Modification

MTI’s vehicle modification program assesses and installs equipment such as scooter hitch lifts, full size van lifts, 4-point tie downs and more on the injured worker’s vehicle, always maintaining safety and cost containment as a priority.
