Ohio law requires all companies to secure coverage through the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation. Applying for coverage is quick and easy. Follow the steps below to begin the process:
The Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation
Attn: Cash Control Unit
P. O. Box 15698
Columbus, Ohio 43215-0698
Call our employer services department at 1-888-OHIOCOMP and ask to speak with a Regional Manager for further assistance with the application process and obtaining your certificate of coverage.
Once an employer secures coverage in Ohio and is issued a policy number, it is important to know that you should select a Managed Care Organization (MCO) to medically manage your workers’ compensation program. The Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) may automatically assign a MCO to an employer if one is not selected within 30 days. The employer pays no additional fee for our service - we are paid by the BWC. A new employer can simply enroll with 1-888-OHIOCOMP by completing the attached enrollment form.
