Make your choice count: MCO open enrollment returns April 30th
In the coming weeks, employers throughout Ohio will be asked to make an important decision for their business regarding the choice of their Managed Care Organization (MCO) for workers’ comp. The Chamber believes in keeping our members informed and with that knowledge, you’ll be better prepared to make critical decisions that affect your business.
You now have the opportunity to evaluate the service you and your employees receive through your Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) state certified MCO, and you may choose to switch providers during Open Enrollment. As you evaluate your current provider, ask: “Has my current MCO gotten my injured workers back to work as quickly and as safely as possible?” and, “Has the service I’ve received from my MCO exceeded my expectations?”
The Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber has endorsed Sheakley UniComp as their preferred MCO for Workers’ Comp. Sheakley’s extensive experience in dealing with the BWC and skill in the medical management of claims, positions them to provide you with a comprehensive managed care program that looks out for the health of your business, as well as your employees.
If you are currently with Sheakley UniComp, you need to do nothing – your company will automatically remain with Sheakley UniComp. However, if you are not currently a Sheakley UniComp client, your company now has this limited time opportunity to select Sheakley as your MCO.
The deadline is May 25th to select Sheakley UniComp as your preferred MCO.
