MEDEX offers their clients the ability to take advantage of both programs subsequently. As a certified Health Care Organization (HCO) and approved Medical Provider Network (MPN), MEDEX sets itself apart from other industry competitors by uniquely utilizing each service into one all-encompassing program.
The MEDEX HCO + MPN program is the most powerful tool to maximize medical control and minimize claim cost. HCO + MPN grants employers the maximum control and allows employees to gain quality medical treatment in the event of a work related injury. The program includes an exclusive, specialized network of quality medical providers experienced in Workers’ Compensation. All participating providers were nominated by employer clients and/or their professional claim administrators.
Many other HCO/MPN provider networks within the industry are primarily large networks based upon PPO discounts and are utilized mainly by group health payers. The MEDEX quality network is based on providers who offer quality medical care and have the ability to write timely, ratable medical reports. This program has been successfully integrated and utilized by many Insurance Carriers, Self-Insurance Groups, Permissibly Self Insured Employers, and Third Party Administrators.
So ask yourself, why not both?
HCO: Allows the employer to control and fully direct an injured worker’s medical care for a minimum of 180 days for the majority of claims (employers who offer health benefits) and a minimum of 90 days for those who do not.
MPN: MPN regulations allow the employer to transfer the employee into the MPN if necessary, and contain medical care for the life of the claim within the same provider network.
It’s that simple! Contact us today to take advantage of the HCO + MPN Advantage.
