|Enhanced care Program - Overview|
Faster treatment and better care will lead to quicker, safer return to work and lower an employer's costs.
That is what all of us at BWC want to achieve on each and every claim. AND that is why for the past year, we've worked with a team of stakeholders representing business, labor, managed care and the medical community to re-engineer how to deliver health care. The result is the Enhanced Care Program.
Enhanced care begins July 1
The program also separates the medical and legal components of the workers' comp process without affecting any party's due-process rights. For more complex claims, this approach can reduce delays by as much as five weeks - which means claimants will get back to work faster and healthier than before.
Equally important, BWC and its stakeholder-design team are hopeful a more coordinated approach to care with fewer delays will enable more working Ohioans to return to work - and to life - as quickly and safely as possible.
