Promoting Ethical and State of The Art Pratice in Rehabilitation

MASPPR - Minnesota Association of Service Providers in Private Rehabilitation

  • We are a great network of professional rehabilitation providers in the Minnesota worker’s compensation system from all corners of the state and we are the largest division of MRA.
  • MASPPR leadership works hard to provide excellent content for our conferences every spring and fall.  Sessions topics cover many areas of private rehabilitation such as speakers on new medical developments, helpful resources for QRCs or their clients and discussions about rehabilitation practice from the perspectives of other QRCs, attorneys, the Department of Labor and Industry and Insurers.
  • Members can accrue CEU's for required national certifications (CRC, CDMS) by attending the spring and fall conferences.  At each conference, we hold a division meeting to discuss common concerns and to network. This is held late Thursday afternoon during the Thursday/Friday conference.  Information for upcoming conferences should always be available at:  Link to Conferences at MRA website
  • MASPPR members have worked with other groups to monitor changes in rules and laws that may have an impact on injured workers on rehabilitation practice.
  • MASPPR has developed a peer review process that is available to our members
