Modernizing BWC – The plan to
optimize the premium collection model

BWC is transitioning to a billing system that will provide more flexibility for employers while reducing overall systems costs.

This change aligns BWC with standard industry practice and enables us to collect premiums before extending coverage. This transition becomes effective July 1, 2015, for private employers, and Jan. 1, 2016, for public employers. This conversion is part of BWC’s ongoing efforts to modernize its operations and provide better service to Ohio’s employers.
