CareWorks Comp TPA

The Ohio Hotel & Lodging Association partners with CareWorks Comp to help members lower their Ohio workers’ compensation premium. Our discount and refund programs, risk control, and claims administration solutions help employers reduce their risk and control their workers' compensation costs. We’ve saved employers more than $3.1B in premium discounts, and we’ve returned nearly $400M in premium refunds.

We’re more than a TPA:

We have a personal stake in your success. Long-term relationships matter, and as an extension of your team, we take the time to understand what success looks like to you and how we can help you get there. Our team of experts is committed to providing you and your organization with compassion and consistency in everything that we do.

It is always a good idea to evaluate your workers’ compensation savings and program fees. BWC assigns new rates each year based on an employer’s payroll and experience.
