BWC Publishes 2021 MCO Report Card

The open enrollment period for Ohio employers to select a managed care organization (MCO) to oversee the medical management for workers injured on the job begins this Monday, May 3 and continues through Friday, May 28.

While there are no out-of-pocket costs to elect an MCO, the choice of an MCO is important since it allows employers to direct quality medical management on behalf of their workers. Find details in the BWC’s MCO Selection Guide and new BWC MCO Report Card — an objective source of information that summarizes each MCO’s performance in quality of medical management, return-to-work strategies, and timeliness of service.

MCO changes will be effective June 28. 4/29/2021
