Franklin, TN – November 1, 2010–WorkCompWire–Coventry Workers’ Comp Services, a division of Coventry Health Care, Inc., has reached an agreement to access MagnaCare in the state of New York for its Recommendation of Care (ROC) network. This agreement comes as a result of Coventry’s desire to increase the breadth and depth of its ROC offering in the state.
The ROC Network is a non-certified voluntary option, which allows injured workers to seek care with network
providers and payors to reimburse providers based on contractual rates. The ROC network is also a great
alternative for employers/carriers who utilize a Certified PPO throughout the state and have needs in counties that are not certified.
“While we have long offered our Recommendation of Care Network, we wanted to provide the most
comprehensive network both in terms of access and reimbursement rates.” stated Bruce Singleton, senior vice president provider network product development, “The addition of the MagnaCare network to our offering means our clients will have a broader network for referring their injured workers, while achieving the best savings possible.”
“MagnaCare is happy to be a part of the Coventry solution.” shared Steven Kokulak, vice president workers’
compensation and no-fault, “We believe that this partnership will provide the best access and savings
opportunity for the Coventry clients and their injured workers.”
The MagnaCare network will become available to new and existing Coventry clients in November. Coventry
and MagnaCare will both continue to offer their Certified PPO products independent of each other. Coventry
offers its Certified PPO through its wholly-owned subsidiary MetraComp.
