A Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE) is a comprehensive battery of performance-based tests that is used commonly to determine ability for work, activities of daily living, or leisure activities. FCEs are available at all Marden Outpatient Clinics in Ohio and West Virginia.
Functional Capacity Evaluations have become commonplace in today’s workplace when an employee is trying to return to work. Requested by the employee, physician, insurance carrier, or employer, FCEs provide an objective measure of an employee’s functional ability or capacity. Directed towards the employee’s designated job task, the FCE is a one-on-one test that is completed over the course of several hours by a licensed Therapist who has been certified to perform Functional Capacity Evaluations. Each Evaluation is specifically tailored to the patient’s individual job so that a clear set of findings will be issued for each patient’s job tasks.
FCEs are typically covered under most insurance plans.
