Employer/MCO look-up

This service offering allows authorized users to search our records to:

  • Determine whether an employer operating in Ohio has workers' compensation coverage.
  • Find out specific information about the employer such as name, address and managed care organization (MCO).
Ohio law requires employers who operate within the state to provide workers’ compensation coverage for their employees. BWC actively ensures compliance with this law. through educating and informing all stakeholders in the system of their rights and responsibilities and holding parties accountable for meeting their obligations.

You can conduct your search using either the employer name and city, or the policy number. If you do not find the information you want, use the Complete search. This search takes more time because it adds a wild card at the beginning and the end of the information you've entered. So, your results will include anything that has the information you've entered. If your search is still unsuccessful, call us at 1-800-644-6292 for assistance.

Throughout an employer's relationship with BWC, our records will reflect a particular coverage status based on the activity or lack of activity in the employer's policy. When an employer establishes coverage, the coverage status will be Active. If we do not receive an employer's premium payment timely, the coverage status will become Noncompliant. If the employer sends the premium payment after the due date, the coverage status will become Active effective the date we received the payment. The definitions below will help you better understand coverage status.

Note: Policy status is based on information we have at the time you conduct the search. Please check this site frequently to confirm the status as it does change due to the payment schedule and the payment validation process.
