Monopolistic Work Comp States

There are four monopolistic states left in the country. These states have special laws that require employers in that state to purchase their workers comp coverage though the state's designated workers compensation program or State Fund. Private insurance companies are not permitted to offer coverage in these four states.

Ohio State Fund coverage is divided into two separate divisions. The Bureau of Workers Compensation (BWC) is responsible for offering state fund coverage and managing policy administration. The Industrial Commission of Ohio (IC) manages and administers all workers compensation claims in Ohio. The Ohio Workers Compensation Oversight Commission reviews asset investments and administrative rules.

Monopolistic states do not benefit from utilizing standardized classification systems and national data statistics for workers comp insurance. This causes problems for both Ohio employers and employers from other states doing work in Ohio. Special considerations are required.

Inter-state and intra-state experience modifiers are not standardized for monopolistic states and Ohio employers may have separate experience modifiers affecting the cost of their insurance coverage. NCCI combines employer experience modifiers in non-monopolistic states.
