What Are You Waiting For?
Have you enrolled in the BWC's Substance Use Recovery and Workplace Safety Program (SUR) to get reimbursed for drug-free workplace program purchases? If you're in a participating county, what are you waiting for?

SUR reimburses you for purchases* that support your drug-free workplace program - purchases you are probably already making:


And good news! You don't have to be enrolled in the program at the time of your purchase. The program is retroactive, once you're enrolled you can submit paperwork to get reimbursed for all qualifying purchases you've made since July 1, 2019.

SUR also pairs well with the BWC's Drug-Free Safety Program as most of the purchases you make to stay compliant with DFSP are eligible for SUR reimbursement.

Interested in enrolling? Want to know if you are located in a participating county? Check out BWC's website.

And if you are wondering if your next purchase would qualify for reimbursement, reach out, we'll happily answer your questions.

*Purchases must meet SUR qualifications to be eligible for reimbursement.
