Workers Comp Group Rating
Chamber members can save significantly on their workers’ compensation premiums by joining the Sidney-Shelby County Chamber of Commerce workers’ compensation program administered by CareWorksComp.
We partner with CareWorksComp to deliver the most significant cost savings to our members. CareWorksComp embraces a results-oriented approach that fully integrates safety prevention and risk control with aggressive claims management to deliver a significant return on investment. The Chamber and CareWorksComp can analyze your company to determine the BEST workers’ compensation premium-saving program for you.
Group Rating – CareWorksComp’s group rating program is the only plan endorsed by the Chamber.
Group Retrospective Rating – This program offers premium savings and can be a great alternative for companies unable to qualify for traditional group experience rating.
Deductible Program – This program offers discounts on premium rates in exchange for accepting a specified deductible amount.
100% EM Cap – Companies becoming penalty rated for the upcoming policy year can have increases to their Experience Modifier (EM) limited, or capped, at 100%, thereby limiting rate and premium increases.
Other Alternative Rating & Discount Programs – Drug-Free Safety Program, One Claim Program, Safety Council, Salary Continuation, Deductible, and others.
Self Insurance – Companies pay compensation and medical costs directly for work-related injuries avoiding escalating reserves and premiums charged by the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation. CareWorks Consultants serves more Ohio self-insured employers than any other third party administrator.
As a result of their best-in-class service, CareWorksComp has consistently maintained a 97% retention rate - one of the highest in the industry.
