IMPORTANT OHIO WORKERS' COMPENSATION PROGRAM ANNOUNCEMENT
Dear OML Member,
I want to take this opportunity to inform you of an important change to the Ohio Municipal League's (OML's) workers' compensation group rating program.
I am pleased to announce that OML has selected CareWorksComp as our new third party administrator for our Workers' Compensation Group Rating Program and they will begin administering our program effective April 25, 2018.
Also effective Wednesday, April 25, 2018, CompManagement/Sedgwick will no longer be OML's third party administrator for our Workers' Compensation Group Rating Program.
As your group-rating sponsor, we understand the direct impact an effective group rating program has on your bottom line. This change was made after a great deal of consideration and evaluation of the companies providing these services in the state of Ohio in relation to the needs of our members.
CareWorksComp is a Dublin, Ohio based company, owned by York Risk Services, which manages the Public Entity Pool of Ohio (PEP). CareWorksComp is committed to providing the superior service OML members have come to expect from association- endorsed partners.
As a current member of OML's group rating program, the switch to CareWorksComp as our new program administrator DOES NOT affect your current enrollment in group rating for the 2019 policy year (January 1, 2019, through December 31, 2019) or change your present group discount.
In addition, CareWorksComp has committed to no fee change for at least two years.
Effective April 25, 2018, CareWorksComp will begin managing all new and existing claims, including management and attendance at hearings on your behalf. A member of your CareWorksComp team will be calling you within the next week to introduce CareWorksComp and to answer any questions you may have.
OML is very excited about our new partnership with CareWorksComp and looks forward to enhancing the best group rating program in Ohio.
