Ohio Workers’ Comp Open Enrollment Begins Monday

COLUMBUS, Ohio – The open enrollment period for Ohio employers to select a managed care organization to oversee medical treatment for workers injured on the job begins Monday and continues through May 25.

The Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation offers open enrollment every two years for employers to select from a network of 13 MCOs that manage claim filings and medical care that injured workers need to recover and return to work.

No action is required of employers satisfied with their current MCO. Those considering a change can complete the MCO Selection Form.

Open enrollment details are available in the MCO Selection Guide on BWC’s website. Visitors to the site can also find the MCO Report Card, an objective source of information that summarizes each MCO’s performance in several categories, including quality of medical management, return-to-work strategies and timeliness of service.

MCO changes will be effective July 2.
