Insurance Information Institute President Robert Hartwig urged Ohio Insurance Director Mary Jo Hudson and other state officials at an industry meeting to privatize workers' compensation insurance to provide consumers with more insurance options, as well as create a market for private carriers. "There's interest, at least on the part of some, of moving to at least a partial privatization of that market. The meeting went well, [and] the task force has been hearing from various experts in the area of workers' compensation over the last several ... months on this particular issue," Hartwig said.
