Workers’ compensation premiums are a significant overhead expense for employers. Navigating the claim process can also be complicated and frustrating for both the employer and an injured employee. But both are controllable, and your Managed Care Organization (MCO) is a key partner in achieving success with your workers’ compensation program.

The Ohio Farm Bureau Federation endorses Sedgwick Managed Care Ohio for members, and here are the two most important reasons why members should select Sedgwick MCO:

Results – the data is clear
  • Claims managed by Sedgwick MCO incur 10.9% fewer lost days per claim than claims managed by other MCOs.¹ Fewer lost workdays translates to less costly claims and fewer staffing problems to solve.
  • Sedgwick MCO reduced medical costs for their clients by an additional 17.2% below BWC fee schedule in 2022.² All MCOs reduce medical bills to the BWC standard fee schedule, but this additional Sedgwick reduction enhances premium savings and discount options.
Service – making things simple
  • Workers’ compensation claims can become complex. Sedgwick MCO works closely with their client employers and with the injured employee to navigate the BWC system and the medical treatment process until the claim is resolved.

Now is the time to make an MCO selection. If you are already enrolled with Sedgwick Managed Care Ohio, no action is required. But if you are interested in improving and simplifying your workers’ compensation program, we encourage you to take this opportunity to engage Sedgwick MCO.

Available scholarships
I appreciate the benefit of having a strong voice in my corner. The extras that are included in membership are wonderful, but I'm a member because of the positive impact to my local and state agricultural communities.

Leadership development
Farm Bureau involvement has taught me how to grow my professional and leadership experience outside of the workforce and how to do that in a community-centric way.

With not growing up on a farm, I’d say I was a late bloomer to agriculture. I feel so fortunate that I found the agriculture industry. There are so many opportunities for growth.

Growing our Generation
Labor has always been an issue, mainly because we are a seasonal operation. So that's a challenge finding somebody who only wants to work three months out of a year, sometimes up to six months.

Knowing that horticulture is under the agriculture umbrella and having Farm Bureau supporting horticulture like it does the rest of ag is very important.

If it wasn't for Farm Bureau, I personally, along with many others, would not have had the opportunity to meet with our representatives face to face in Washington.

So many of the issues that OFBF and its members are advocating for are important to all Ohioans. I look at OFBF as an agricultural watchdog advocating for farmers and rural communities across Ohio.
