Prepare for changes in Workers’ Compensation

Buckeye Farm News

Prospective billing will begin July 1, for private employers, and BWC will provide employers with an invoice for their 12-month premium prior to the start of the policy year. In the first prospective year, BWC will require employers to follow a specific installment plan, and private employers will initially be on a bi-monthly (six installment) payment schedule.

The deadline for group-retrospective rating, individual-retrospective rating, the Deductible Program and One Claim Program is now Jan. 30.

Find more information about the prospective billing process as well as deadlines one at the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation website, or from Ohio Farm Bureau’s group ratings’ provider CompManagement, Inc.
