Helping Ohio's injured employees return to work
safely and quickly.

Sedgwick Managed Care Ohio (MCO) is a workers’ compensation managed care organization focused on helping injured employees return to work safely and quickly. We provide seamless solutions to support employees throughout their recovery and help clients control expenses and reduce lost workdays.

Sedgwick MCO was formed when CompManagement Health Systems (CHS) and CareWorks of Ohio merged. CHS and CareWorks have been providing tailored managed care services for decades, and have extensive experience guiding Ohio employers and injured employees through the managed care process.

When a workplace injury occurs, we focus on getting employees back to work, lowering medical bills and managing the overall process for employers. From day one, we work to ensure the medical aspects of each claim are organized and we develop a clear, customized return to work plan. We have the expertise and resources employers need, and our reach ensures we know their communities and providers. Our high customer satisfaction level and overall performance results are driven by our communication and thoughtful focus on medical resolution and return to work.

Medical management experts

We partner with active practitioners, experienced in work-related injuries because we know medical factors drive claim costs, complications, and return- to- work delays. They’ll work alongside your dedicated claims team to ensure proper case management.
