Again this year, our association is sponsoring a workers’ compensation group, so that our members can continue to receive significant discount off their workers’ compensation premiums. The group administrator, Frank Gates, has sent out enrollment materials to all returning employers who qualify for the group.
If you have not enrolled in the program yet, the deadline for Frank Gates to receive your enrollment materials is February 28, 2014, but we strongly recommend enrolling as soon as possible to lock in your rate and make sure you don’t miss out on the discount.
If your company hasn’t taken advantage of the great rate reduction and services included in the plan, there is still time to be evaluated for the coming group!

The Ohio Healthcare Shortage Task Force was created in Ohio's budget bill and is based within the Ohio Department of Health (ODH). OPA's Executive Director, Ernie Boyd, is a member of the Task Force.

Please take a look at the DRAFT report that ODH has released regarding their recommendations for the Task Force.
