  • Sheakley's service representatives are experts in identifying pre-existing conditions to help reduce employers' premiums. In 2013, Sheakley was yet again a leader in filing Handicap Reimbursements with a total of 1,078 applications, demonstrating their dedication to finding every opportunity to maximize savings.
  • Always looking out for the best interest of Cincinnati USA companies, Sheakley will review your company and evaluate your savings potential through both group rating discounts and group retrospective rating rebates. 
  • Sheakley and the Chamber have been in partnership for 23 years and have a proud history of accurate savings projections.

The State of Ohio allows associations like the Chamber to pool their members into large groups, then treats each group as if it were a large company, offering premium savings that are otherwise available only to large companies with good claims history. Employers in group rating are billed by the state and pay their premiums directly to the state. Group rating is simply a way to achieve lower rates.

Sheakley, the Cincinnati-based administrator of ChamberComp, determines eligibility for participants using company claims and payroll records provided by the state. Because ChamberComp is the largest program in southwestern Ohio, there are more group options for your company within the program, which could mean better savings than you can receive in smaller programs.
