Ohio BWC: Employers Now Have One-stop Online Shop for Workers’ Comp Policy Details

Columbus, OH – The Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) has launched a new online tool that makes it easier for employers to navigate and manage the details of their workers’ compensation insurance policy. My Policy Page at ohiobwc.com allows most employers to view important policy, rating plan, and claims information at the click of a button. It also displays each employer’s program eligibility to highlight any premium saving opportunities they may be missing.

“We’ve made a priority of improving service to better meet the needs of our customers, and that includes simplifying the process of communicating and conducting business with us,” said BWC Administrator/CEO Steve Buehrer. “By putting the most important information at their fingertips, we’re making it easier for employers to do business online.”

Employers will automatically be directed to the page after logging in to their BWC e-account. From this home page, employers can report payroll and pay premium, reprint coverage certificates, check outstanding balances, update demographic and contact information and receive updates on important dates and deadlines. They can also view:

  • Current program participation and eligibility for other premium discount programs.
  • Claims history and details about specific claims. A search function allows an employer to look up claims by date of injury, status, or benefit type.
  • Quarterly claims costs, as well as any costs associated with claims that occur during a specified range of dates. This function also allows the creation of a downloadable report in Microsoft Excel.

Employers currently without an online profile can create one at ohiobwc.com. Employers that conduct business with BWC online can receive a Go Green premium discount available through BWC’s Destination: Excellence Program. More information is available here.

My policy page is not available to companies that self insure, those covered under the marine fund, or state agencies.
