BWC Information and Group Rating Program

Dear BOMA Columbus Member,

Take control of your workers’ compensation savings!  Group rating is designed to allow employers of similar industries to “pool” their combined workers’ compensation experience and file with the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) as one “BIG” group through approved sponsoring organizations - like BOMA Columbus and BOMA Ohio.

Now is your chance to apply for the group rating program administrated through CareWorksComp, Ohio’s largest TPA, which has generated savings for more than 48,000 Ohio employers.

Your organization can significantly reduce your OH workers’ compensation costs through a variety of alternative rating programs. Our program, administered by Sedgwick, offers you quality service and stability through the complex workers’ compensation environment.

For over 50 years, Sedgwick has been helping employers navigate Ohio’s workers’ compensation system, providing services to help them control claim-related costs and reduce premiums. Our team includes the experienced colleagues from CompManagement and CareWorks Comp. The two companies merged and are now Sedgwick. Together, we serve nearly 65,000 Ohio employers including organizations of all sizes operating in various industries across the state. Group rating programs administered by Sedgwick have produced over $4 billion in savings since group rating was introduced in 1991, and their group retrospective programs have returned over $630 million in premium refunds since the program began in 2009. For more information, or for a no-cost, no-obligation quote of your potential premium savings, contact our Sedgwick representative, Julia Bowling, (513) 218-4062 or julia.bowling@sedgwick.com
