Tailored solutions for private employers

CareWorksComp is Ohio’s largest and fastest growing group rating plan administrator, serving more than 250 private trade associations, chambers of commerce, and throughout Ohio. CareWorksComp has been administering group rating plans since the inception of the program in 1991, and presently serves more than 46,000 Ohio employers.

Tailored Programs

We develop tailored programs for sponsoring organizations that include innovative education and marketing programs for both current and prospective participants. Our expertise in group formation provides the optimal number of options to assure the overall group receives the highest discount level.

Once groups are formed and officially filed with the Ohio BWC, CareWorksComp supports participants with industry best claims management services. Effective, proactive claim management is critical in many situations where a participant’s eligibility for the group program may be at risk, or where an employer is attempting to gain eligibility and is faced with a claim.

Claims Representation

CareWorksComp offers claims representation, rating analysis, hearing representation, unemployment consultation, safety analysis, and more to our group rating members.

CareWorksComp is proud that over the past ten years it has retained 97% of the group sponsors who have entrusted CareWorksComp with administering their group programs. Additionally, CareWorksComp has experienced a 63% growth in group rating since 2002, with the closest major competitor at 33%.
