2014 MCO open enrollment
April 28 to May 23, 2014
The 2014 MCO open enrollment period begins at 7:30 a.m., April 28 and ends at 5:30 p.m., May 23.
Open enrollment gives all state-fund employers (with an active workers' compensation policy) an opportunity to choose a managed care organization (MCO) to
help manage the medical portion of their workers' compensation claims. A strong MCO-employer partnership also helps injured workers receive the treatment
they need to get back to work as safely and quickly as possible.
Choosing an MCO that meets the needs of your business and your workers is an important decision. To help you make your choice, we have created the
MCO Selection Guide and MCO Report Card (see Related links below).
The guide provides instructions, and the report card provides MCO performance information intended to help you with the selection process. These measures
include quality medical management statistics we use to evaluate the return-to-work ser¬vices and quality of medical man¬agement the MCOs provide to injured
If you are satisfied with your MCO, you do not need to do anything. However, if you decide to select a new MCO, you can complete the online MCO Selection
Form, or you can download and print a blank form, complete it and mail or fax it to BWC. We have included links to the online form and the printable form
below. If you change your MCO during open enrollment, the new MCO will begin managing the medical portion of your claims June 30, 2014.
Note: MCOs cannot market their services to employers before April 28. However, if you would like more information you may contact any MCO prior to
the open enrollment period. MCOs may respond to requests initiated by employers prior to April 28.
We designed the resources below to help you with the open enrollment process. However, if you need
additional assistance, please call 1-800-644-6292. Representatives are available from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
