Ohio BWC through Sedgwick Open Enrollment is currently open through May 26.
Workers’ compensation premiums are a significant overhead expense for employers. Navigating the claim process can also be complicated and frustrating for both the employer and an injured employee. But both are controllable, and your Managed Care Organization (MCO) is a key partner in achieving success with your workers’ compensation program.
The Building Owners and Managers Association endorses Sedgwick Managed Care Ohio for our members, and here are the two most important reasons why we encourage members to select Sedgwick MCO:
Results – the data is clear
- Claims managed by Sedgwick MCO incur 10.9% fewer lost days per claim than claims managed by other MCOs.1 Fewer lost workdays translates to less costly claims and fewer staffing problems to solve.
- Sedgwick MCO reduced medical costs for their clients by an additional 17.2% below BWC fee schedule in 2022.2 All MCOs reduce medical bills to the BWC standard fee schedule, but this additional Sedgwick reduction enhances premium savings and discount options.
Service – making things simple
- Workers’ compensation claims can become complex. Sedgwick MCO works closely with their client employers and with the injured employee to navigate the BWC system and the medical treatment process until the claim is resolved.
Now is the time to make a MCO selection. If you are already enrolled with Sedgwick Managed Care Ohio, no action is required.
