first two months back on the job. The onsite coach helped Freesmeier with things such as ensuring she was taking appropriate notes and following processes.

"Having the onsite coach during my first few months back on the job was very beneficial for me," says Freesmeier. "It made my transition back into my routine a lot easier."

Freesmeier's rehabilitation experience is one of several successes CIGNA Group Insurance is highlighting next week during a series of employee and customer gatherings in the company's disability claim offices in Pittsburgh, Dallas and Glendale, Calif. Through these events, CIGNA will focus on vocational rehabilitation, celebrated each September as part of National Rehabilitation Awareness Week, with a mission to educate people about the benefits and impact of rehabilitation. CIGNA Group Insurance, and sister company Intracorp, are the national sponsors of this observance, celebrated from Sept. 16-22, in cooperation with the National Rehabilitation Awareness Foundation (NRAF) of Scranton, PA.

CIGNA will be awarding employers, including Toyota, McKesson Corporation and Henry Ford Health System, with a Return-to-Work Award for their success in implementing return-to-work programs for their employees. In addition, claimants, such as Freesmeier, will be visiting the offices to share their successful return-to-work stories with CIGNA employees.

"CIGNA works to assist our employer customers, and their disabled employees, in the shared goal of returning to productive work," said Mark Marsters, senior vice president, CIGNA Group Insurance. "Many employers are committed to ensuring return-to-work programs are in place. These efforts not only contribute to productivity, but they also enable employees to regain independent living."

"I never imagined something like this would ever happen to me," says Freesmeier. "I am fortunate to be alive and I am grateful to have been able to return to work after my rehabilitation."
