2016 MCO open enrollment
May 2 to May 27, 2016
The 2016 MCO open enrollment period begins at 7:30 a.m., May 2 and ends at 5:30 p.m., May 27.
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). Take time to connect with your MCO.
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 workers.
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 July 4, 2016.
Note: MCOs cannot market their services to employers before May 2. 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 May 2.
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.
