Following a work accident an injured employee may be hounded by collectors for outstanding balances with hospitals, doctors offices, physical therapy offices and more. In Ohio, if the injured employee has an allowed workers comp claim, those bills should be submitted to an MCO (managed care organization) or self-insured employer.
The bill will need to be related to the work injury or it is unlikely to be paid. This can be a point of contention as the MCO or employer might deny payment arguing the bill is unrelated to the work injury and/or the conditions allowed or recognized in the claim.
