The Health Plan Managed Workers' Compensation Program Invites Employers to Enroll

ST.CLAIRSVILLE, OH (April 25, 2014) - The Health Plan Managed Workers' Compensation Program (MWCP), a workers' compensation managed care organization (MCO), announces its participation in the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation (BWC) 2014 MCO open enrollment for the Health Partnership Program (HPP). Introduced in 1997, the HPP was designed by the Ohio BWC to improve the delivery of medical care for Ohio's injured workers while reducing workers' compensation costs for employers.

All employers in Ohio are required by the Ohio BWC to designate an MCO as part of their workers' compensation coverage. Once every two years, employers if they are dissatisfied with their current service provider, have an opportunity to select a different MCO. The 2014 open enrollment period starts at 8:00 a.m. on Monday, April 28 and ends at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, May 23.

"The Health Plan MWCP has a well established reputation for outstanding customer service," says Pam Rodriques, RN, ONC, CCM, and Manager of The Health Plan's MCO. "Our goals are to be an active member of our employer client’s workers' compensation administrative team and ensure their injured workers can return to work in a safe and timely manner."

With administrative offices in St.Clairsville and Massillon, Ohio, The Health Plan MWCP serves approx. 13,000 employers throughout Ohio and is BWC-certified in all 88 Ohio counties. In addition, The Health Plan MWCP has achieved URAC accreditation in case management.

"By choosing The Health Plan, area employers can both utilize an outstanding MCO and promote the local economy by keeping their business with an organization that is close to home," comments Rodriques. "This creates a win-win situation."
