CCAOSC Workers’ Comp Group Rating Plan

CCAOSC Workers’ Comp Group Rating Plan

Group Rating (also called Group Experience Rating) allows employers who operate similar businesses to join together to achieve lower premium rates than they could as individual employers. Group experience rating guidelines are outlined in OAC 4123-17-61 to 68. Group members are all charged the same Group Rating premium rate rather than their individual experience rated premium. An organization to which all the employers belong, such as a trade association, acts as the group sponsor, and must be certified by the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC). The group sponsor must provide education and communication to group members on safety and reducing workplace injuries, and must submit a safety plan each year to be approved by the BWC. The County Commissioners’ Association of Ohio Service Corporation (CCAOSC) sponsors a Group Rating Plan for member counties. This is the only group experience rating plan available to counties. All eligible counties are offered an opportunity to join each year. From its inception in 1992, the CCAOSC Group Rating Plan has saved counties millions of dollars in workers’ compensation

CCAO contracts with CompManagement, Inc. to administer the Group Rating Plan.
