We are excited to share the news that CareWorks of Ohio, Ltd. (CareWorks MCO), is merging with CompManagement Health Systems, Inc. (CompManagement MCO) effective Monday, December 21, 2020. This merger will accompany a name change to Sedgwick Managed Care Ohio (Sedgwick MCO).
You will recall that Sedgwick, CompManagement’s parent company, acquired CareWorks in 2019. For the past 16 months, the teams at CareWorks and CompManagement have partnered to develop best practices to ensure outstanding outcomes remain available to our members. We are excited to partner with this new level of managed care!
A couple of things to note below for our members who utilize Careworks MCO:
- Your MCO service team will remain the same. Your Case Specialist, Nurse Case Manager and Account Executive will continue to work with you, your employees and your organization.
- Any CareWorks Injury Reporting Packets that you have can continue to be used.
- Your employees with an active claim will also receive a letter regarding this merger, along with updated instructions and reference information to share with treating physicians.
- This does not impact the administration of our group rating or group retrospective rating programs.
Again, there will be no change in MCO contacts for you or your injured workers as a result of this merger. We look forward to the valuable resources that Sedgwick MCO brings to our members. For additional information, we invite you to visit SedgwickMCO.com.
