Ohio Bureau of Worker's Compensation

As of July 1, the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation will no longer pay for a powerful painkiller that’s at the center of the opioid crisis here in the Buckeye State. 

Gov. Mike DeWine has submitted to state lawmakers what he hopes to see in the budget for a key agency – a budget that’s separate from the big statewide spending plan he’ll introduce next month.

Employers could be getting a big rebate if the Board of Directors for the Ohio Bureau of Worker’s Compensation approves it.
