What is Group Rating?

Joining a group rating program is the best way for your practice to significantly lower your Ohio workers’ compensation premium. We offer a multi-tiered group rating program with the highest possible discounts allowed by the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) –53%.

Our programs pool together employers from similar industries which helps generate maximum premium savings for all participants. Based on each customer’s unique eligibility characteristics, we place employers in the highest discount level achievable, minimizing comparison shopping.
Basically, Group Rating is a savings opportunity for your practice and who doesn’t want to save MORE money?
