Self-insurance is a privilege the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation (BWC) grants to employers that successfully meet certain criteria and properly complete the application process.  Once approved, Self-Insured (SI) employers directly pay their claims, assume all liability and administer their own workers’ compensation programs rather than pay premiums into the Ohio State Fund.  ProComp has an experienced staff that understands the Self-Insurance process.  In addition to administering existing SI programs, we can also help determine the financial feasibility of implementing an SI program and then develop a strategy to achieve BWC approval and provide future administration.
