CareWorksComp Annual Seminars: Our annual workers’ comp seminars will be presented at the end of April/beginning of May. This year, in an effort to make these as convenient as possible for our clients, we will be offering the same material in a webinar format as well. Identical materials will be provided for the seminars and webinars, and both will satisfy the BWC’s Two-Hour Group Safety Training requirement. The seminar schedule is:
April 25, 2017: Cleveland / May 2, 2017: Columbus / May 3, 2017: Cincinnati
2017 Premium Installment Notifications: The BWC will issue 2017 estimated annual premium notices on May 1, and you should receive your updated premium installment schedule at that time. We recommend using that schedule to keep track of your payments all year, as sometimes BWC monthly invoices have different due dates listed and it can be confusing to know which date to use.
Billion Back Rebate: You may have heard the good news…BWC is proposing to once again return over $1 billion dollars to private and public employers! If the rebate is approved at the end of the month by the BWC Board of Directors, the rebates will begin to be given in July*. Here are the highlights:
- This is a one-time rebate.
- The rebate will be 66% of 2015 policy year premium (premium paid 7/1/15 – 6/30/16).
- If an employer has an outstanding balance, the rebate will be applied to the balance first.
- An employer must be current with BWC policy requirements.
- The reason the BWC is able to give this rebates is because of successful investments…it in no way jeopardizes the care of and benefits for Ohio’s injured workers.
*(Group Retro participants will receive their rebate after the group retro refund is calculated in October). There will be more specific information to come!
