NOACC endorses Health Management Solutions as MCO

ALERT – 2018 BWC MCO Open Enrollment is April 30 – May 25

NOACC Endorses MCO Health Management Solutions (HMS)

MCOs provide important BWC services!

Managed Care Organizations (MCOs) help employers file and manage claims, ensure injured workers receive the quality medical care they need, and coordinate a quick and safe return to work.  MCOs are an employer’s first point of contact for claims, and first line of defense to control claim outcomes and premium costs.

BWC pays for MCO services…employers pay $0.  So pick a MCO based upon performance/service excellence

 How to select your MCO during Open Enrollment

  • BWC will only permit employers to switch MCOs in May 2018…next open enrollment is May 2020
  • Employers will choose their MCO based upon performance and service excellence…$0 price difference
  • BWC helps employers choose their MCO based upon BWC’s performance measurements…BWC will publish results in their 2018 MCO Open Enrollment Report Card. Employers can obtain a Scorecard on April 30
  • Employers switching MCOs will need to complete an Open Enrollment Form…it takes 5 minutes!
  • Employers will be barraged by marketing materials/calls during MCO Open Enrollment…be prepared!

Chamber Bright Stars 2017 Awards and Dinner

The Chamber Bright Stars for 2017 will be recognized on Thursday, October 26th at the semi-annual Chamber Leadership meeting and tenth annual Chamber Bright Star Awards presentation of the Northern Ohio Area Chambers of Commerce (NOACC) in the Bistro at the JACK Thistledown Racino, North Randall, Ohio.

About 40 chambers of commerce across northern Ohio nominated a person from their chamber as their “Bright Star,” to recognize a chamber member who has “made a significant impact on the chamber through membership, retention, sponsorship, economic development, operations and/or education.” Each Bright Star is an active chamber member for no less than two years and is likely to be an unsung hero or a dedicated behind-the-scenes volunteer.

Each Chamber’s Bright Star 2017, will accept his/her certificate and trophy from at the presentation at the event.

These volunteers represent a wide range of involvement with their respective chambers, some having been a member and or officer or committee chairman for 20+ years and some being newly involved but each of whom has given freely of his/her time, working hard for their chambers without any expectations.

This is the tenth year for the Chamber Bright Star Awards, and again has given an opportunity to recognize these volunteers among their peer groups, as chamber representatives, board members and spouses will also be in attendance.

Cindy Caldwell, board chair for NOACC and the executive director of the Beachwood Chamber reminds us that, “A chamber’s success is due in great part to the support of its volunteers. They are the true cheerleaders of our organizations deserve our praise regularly.”

All the Bright Star photos and information from previous years is available at www.noacc.org/brightphotos.html. A link to the photos and video from this year’s event are posted on the www.noacc.org website.
