Businesses Face MCO Decisions
Employers throughout Ohio will be asked to make a big decision starting April 30, 2012 regarding what Managed Care Organization (MCO) they want to handle the complex tasks of medically managing their workers’ compensation injuries. Once every two years, employers are given the opportunity to review their current MCO every two years, and then decide whether they wish to remain with their current service provider or switch to another.
Unless you have had to use the services of your MCO, you may not even know whether you have made the right decision for your company.
If you’ve had to use your MCO, here are two questions to ask:
- “Has my current MCO gotten my injured workers back to work as quickly and as safely as possible?”
- “Has the service I’ve received from my MCO exceeded my expectations?”
The Chamber is here to assist with all your benefit needs.
