We are now accepting applications for the 2017 Workers’ Compensation Group Rating Program.

Workers’ comp insurance is vital to businesses and employees. But often business owners only think about workers’ comp when they have a claim. You can offer your clients a program that encourages a safe work environment and reduces premium costs.

With OIA’s workers’ compensation group rating program, employers receive:
  • Superior customer service.
  • Discounts on workers’ comp premiums with access to multiple savings tiers.
  • Diverse benefits that can reduce premiums, such as retro and safety services.
Reach out to your other commercial clients with our easy-to-use marketing resources, including sample letters, flyers and a list of businesses in your area that are not currently enrolled in group rating. You can even include an AC-3 form in your annual renewal process or your new client paperwork.

Fax completed AC3s to CompManagement at (866) 567-9380. Upon eligibility, your clients will receive no-obligation enrollment packets starting in June with estimated savings information. Once enrollment packets begin going out in June, any AC3’s submitted will be reviewed within 7 to 10 business days. The application deadline for participation in the 2017 program is the end of October 2016 in order to meet the Nov. 18 enrollment deadline.
