The Connecticut Public Act 93-228 allows every employer control for the life of a claim. The network is voluntary for an employer to participate and there is no minimum amount of employees required to set up a network. The law requires employees that need medical treatment must stay within the Managed Care Organization (MCO) except for medical specialties not covered within the network. The injured worker has the right to choose any provider that is licensed in the state of Connecticut. Learn more about the Connecticut’s MCO legislation www.ct.gov.cid/cwp/view
