Products and Services
The USAble MCO (managed care organization) is the largest
and most comprehensive MCO in Arkansas, serving the health-care access and
medical management needs of employees who file claims under the
state Workers' Compensation system. The USAble MCO operates solely
as a state-certified managed care organization for Workers' Compensation and
not as an insurer or third-party administrator.
The USAble MCO, operated by USAble Corporation, contracts directly with employers
and Workers' Compensation carriers. Approximately 15,000 Arkansas employers representing
more than 750,000 employees access True Blue PPO when a work injury needs medical attention.
Services provided include not only medical/vocational case management, preadmission
certification and utilization review, but also access to the largest provider network in Arkansas,
True Blue PPO preferred provider organization (PPO), with more than 5,950 participating physicians
and hospitals. Access to the PPO assures employers and insurers that they receive the most
care for the dollar. Participating PPO providers agree to render significant savings for a
stable volume of patients. Savings are passed on to the insurer and employer.
Medical Management Services
Medical management expertise is provided through an alliance with Systemedic Corporation (an Arkansas managed care firm). The specialized
knowledge provided by this partner allows the USAble MCO to keep a watchful eye on the medical
effectiveness and cost-efficiency of the care that sick and injured workers receive.
Employers and insurers that contract with the USAble MCO for their Workers' Compensation needs
are able to meet Arkansas Workers' Compensation Commission Rule 30 and 33 requirements.
Meeting such requirements assures employers and insurers that they can legally steer employees
to employer-chosen providers.
