Care Works Consultants
The Ohio Association of Senior Centers endorses CareWorks Consultants Inc. for Workers’ Compensation Group Rating. CareWorks Consultants Inc. (CCI) could save your company significant money on your worker’s comp premium. In 2010, 16 participating members of the OASC are projected to save over $49,000 on their workers' comp premiums.
Fact: Over 75,000 Ohio employers are in a workers’ compensation group. Most employers not in groups are paying much more in worker’s compensation premiums than those in groups. CCI offers OASC members multiple savings levels up to the BWC maximum. Even employers with claims can qualify for premium savings. The multiple levels of savings can also help prevent you from losing your group rating discount should a claim occur.
About CCI: As the largest workers’ compensation third party administrator in Ohio, CCI provides best-in-class cost control and program management to more than 26,000 customers. CCI has been serving Ohio employers since 1950.
Even if your company is enrolled in another workers’ compensation group rating program, you should compare your current program to the OASC endorsed group rating program through CCI. For more information, or for a no-cost, no-obligation quote of your potential premium savings, contact Kirsten Gibson, the OASC’s CCI representative at 800-837-3200 ext. 7110 or visit www.careworksconsultants.com/groupratingapplication/SeniorCenters
