Effective, January 1, 2021, Sedgwick will replace The Hartford as the Leave of Absence Administrator for Boston Scientific. As a result, The Hartford will be transitioning the management of any leave of absence that extends beyond the end of the year to Sedgwick, with the exception of Short-term Disability Leaves.   Sedgwick  will   support  you every step of the way  during this transition, throughout your claim, and for any future absence needs. 
 
Boston Scientific and Sedgwick’s goal is to make this process as simple as possible for you.  Please review the BSC Letter here and the Sedgwick Guide here that was mailed to employees on a current leave to understand how this vendor change will impact your leave as well as any additional actions you may need to take regarding your current leave.
 

Boston Scientific  is excited about this new partnership with Sedgwick.   Sedgwick is looking forward to serving your absence needs.  Starting on January 1, 2021, you can access your claim information 24/7 at www.mySedgwick.com/BSCI or by calling Sedgwick at 855-811-5701. If you have any questions, representatives are available Monday through Friday between 7:00 AM - 8:30 PM Central Time.
