The Agent and Claims Team at OVD focused on educating the client and establishing a claims management process that included:
• Early reporting of all claims
• Establishing and educating supervisors on a transitional return to work policy
• Create a light duty job bank that could accomodate almost all restrictions
• Recurring claims review meetings
The hard work began to pay off for the client after year one – OVD presented a Dividend Workers’ Comp
program which ended up paying back 23% (just over $71,000) of the total annual premium. The experience
mod continued to decrease in each new year. Within 4 years, the client’s experience mod dropped from a
1.74 to a.63 – which resulted in their Workers’ Comp cost decreasing by over 65%.
