BWC Self-Insured Rule Changes
The BWC is proposing that two changes be made to the existing self-insured rules. Specifically, they are seeking to waive the requirement that each applicant must have 500 employees in Ohio and that applicants must operate in Ohio for a minimum of two years. As always, the BWC has the discretion to waive these requirements on a case by case basis.
Additionally, it is being proposed that the cost of any commercial credit reporting bureau services used by the BWC to assist in the evaluation of an applicant’s financial strength must be paid by the applicant.
