Clients can submit claims to Occupational Health Link via phone, fax or online. Employers should use the First Report of Injury (FROI) from the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC), which is available on their website at www.ohiobwc.com. When Occupational Health Link receives a claim, we will file it with BWC. BWC will review the FROI form and all supporting medical documentation obtained by Occupational Health Link, to determine if the claim is compensable and assign allowances.
As an Injured Worker weaving through the Workers’ Compensation field can be a daunting and frightening experience, but as a Managed Care Organization (MCO) who is owned and run by a team of providers, our main focus is to provide quality and affordable health options. Our main goal is to help you return back to work, fully functional.
Medical providers rendering services in Ohio must be BWC-certified to participate in the Health Partnership Program (HPP). Certification is based on licensing, certification and accreditation requirements necessary to provide services.
Employer involvement is crucial for successful claims outcomes. Employers can contribute a great deal to the claims management process through communication, monitoring and participation.
