DUBLIN, OH, Feb. 18, 2021 – CompManagement Health Systems, Inc. and CareWorks of Ohio, Ltd., two Ohio workers’ compensation managed care organizations (MCOs), have announced their merger under parent company Sedgwick, a global provider of technology-enabled risk, benefits and integrated business solutions. The company, now known as Sedgwick Managed Care Ohio (Sedgwick MCO), will offer managed care support to Ohio clients and injured workers.
Sedgwick MCO is a workers’ compensation managed care organization focused on helping injured employees return to work safely and quickly. Sedgwick acquired CompManagement in 2006 and CareWorks in 2019, and over the last year the teams at both MCOs have partnered to combine their best practices and outstanding outcomes for their injured workers in Ohio. This merger enables a seamless transition to bringing additional resources and experience to clients – including a focus on early return to work and cost-effective claim resolution.
“Our clients depend on us to handle the complex medical issues involved in workers’ compensation claims. By merging these two MCOs in Ohio, we further showcase our dedication to simplifying our managed care process,” said Quinn Guist, president at Sedgwick MCO. “We are excited about this next phase of growth; service teams remain unchanged and we are more committed than ever to care for our clients and their employees.”
With the merger, Sedgwick MCO now handles more than half of all Ohio workers’ compensation claims and serves more than 114,000 clients.
Sedgwick provides a broad range of technology-enabled resources that are tailored to the specific needs of clients in casualty, property, marine, benefits and other lines. At Sedgwick, caring counts®; through the dedication and expertise of more than 27,000 colleagues across 65 countries, the company takes care of people and organizations by mitigating and reducing risks and losses, promoting health and productivity, protecting brand reputations, and containing costs that can impact the bottom line.
