Date:5/9/2008

CLEVELAND, May 9 /PRNewswire/ -- CareWorks USA and Medical Mutual of Ohio are joining forces to offer a comprehensive package of wellness programs and absence management solutions to get injured workers back on the job more quickly.

Under the agreement, CareWorks USA will provide workers' compensation, disability, Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and speedy absence management services. Medical Mutual will provide claims administration and high-quality comprehensive health and wellness programs.

In addition to providing employers with meaningful cost-savings, the partnership will help them address the challenging national compliance requirements and help injured workers recover and get back to work faster without the dread and confusion of navigating bureaucratic "red tape."

Improving the overall health and productivity of workers is the positive impact of the new integrated package of disability management, wellness programs and leave administration services, which will focus on managing the impact of lost productivity in the workplace due to employee absences.

"In today's tough economy, employers need a comprehensive approach to manage each illness or injury-related absence to control their costs," said William W. Pfeiffer, Chairman and CEO of The CareWorks Family of Companies. "An integrated approach to absence management can help achieve treatment, successful return to work and long-term wellness. Employers are recognizing the value of people or human capital and the need for solutions focused on the health and productivity of their employee," said Pfeiffer.

"We are delivering a complete package of services to help employers effectively manage every workplace absence focusing on getting the injured worker back on the job," said Perry Braun, vice president of Sales for Medical Mutual. "We continue to look for approaches that serve the employers, the employees and the provider community so that we all can contribute to improve the health and productivity of the workforce."
