July 2020 BWC News from CareWorks Comp

Published on July 09, 2020

We all know that the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) is an escalating global health concern.  CareWorks Comp will continue to support our clients’ workers’ compensation and unemployment compensation needs.  For the most current and up-to-date information from the Ohio BWC regarding COVID-19 topics, please visit the BWC’s website at:  BWC COVID-19 Information .

 

Industrial Commission:  Now Holding Hearings for All Issues

The Ohio Industrial Commission (IC) held a special commissioner’s meeting in early June 2020 to discuss moving forward with allowing all hearing issues to be scheduled within the current telephonic process.   Treatment issues account for 76% of the hearings currently not being heard by the IC.   With this resolution it will open up the hearing process to schedule hearings for any issue, no exclusions.   This was passed unanimously by the commissioners.

FY21 Group Rating Accountability Letter

RE: Group-Rating Safety Accountability

 

Dear Employer:

 

Each year Ohio employers have the opportunity to participate in BWC’s Group-Experience-Rating Program or Group-Retrospective-Rating Program. While these programs are not required, they do provide you with an opportunity to significantly reduce your workers’ compensation premiums, while increasing your awareness of safety and risk-management strategies.

 

Workplace safety is an important component of these programs. To succeed in accident prevention, we encourage you to use the many resources available to you. We believe a group-rating program is a partnership that includes you and your employees, your sponsoring organization or third-party administrator (TPA) and BWC. Each has specific roles and responsibilities, all designed to assist in preventing workplace accidents. This letter outlines the safety services expectations you should have as an employer enrolled in a group-rating program.
