Self-Insuring Employer Update

Self-insuring employers should visit this page regularly. Here you'll find the latest information about topics that impact your company's workers' compensation program.

BWC continues to move forward in meeting the new International Classification of Diseases, tenth revision (ICD-10) code set implementation date of Oct. 1, 2015.
