Next week, the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation is providing a one month open enrollment for employers relative to selecting a Managed Care Organization (MCO). MCOs are a key player for many organizations in keeping their workers’ comp costs in control through proactive case management and a solid transitional work program. Employers pleased with their MCO do not need to take any action. Employers seeking a new MCO can do so at no cost and it only takes about 5 minutes.
There is plenty of information about MCOs at the Bureau’s web site and more data about Ohio MCOs will become abundant starting next week. If you do not know your company’s MCO, you can simply click here to find the MCO assigned to your organization.
Over the next several weeks, ERC will be providing information about the MCO selection process and other critical data to provide organizations facts upon which to make an informed decision. As this open enrollment only occurs every two years, this decision is extremely important.
Since the MCO Open Enrollment period starts April 30 and ends May 25, we will continue to provide you with information throughout to assist you in your choice of a MCO.
