OhioBWC - Basics:  Prior Authorization

Prior Authorization

The managed care organization (MCO), or the self-insuring employer in self-insuring employers’ claims, is responsible for authorizing and determining medical necessity for all claims. The injured worker's treating physician is responsible for contacting the appropriate MCO or self-insuring employer with authorization requests.
