MedCo has always been confident that in April 2020 we would be able to offer to unrepresented claimants a nationwide coverage of medical report providers.  The postponement will mean Medco can carry out more audits prior to implementation than previously anticipated and therefore more medical report providers will be available to offer services to unrepresented claimants.
