Division (A) of this section providing for the payment of
premiums semiannually does not apply to any employer who was a
subscriber to the state insurance fund prior to January 1, 1914, or
who may first become a subscriber to the fund in any month other
than January or July. Instead, the semiannual premiums shall be paid
by those employers from time to time upon the expiration of the
respective periods for which payments into the fund have been made
by them.
The administrator shall adopt rules to permit employers to make
periodic payments of the semiannual premium due under this
division. The rules shall include provisions for the assessment of
interest charges, where appropriate, and for the assessment of
penalties when an employer fails to make timely premium payments.
An employer who timely pays the amounts due under this division is
entitled to all of the benefits and protections of this chapter. Upon
receipt of payment, the bureau immediately shall mail a receipt or
certificate to the employer certifying that payment has been made,
which receipt is prnma-facie evidence of payment. Workers'
compensation coverage under this chapter continues uninterrupted
upon timely receipt of payment under this division.
Every public employer, except public employers that are
self-insuring employers under this section, shall comply with
sections 4123.38 to 4123.41, and 4123.48 of the Revised Code in
regard to the contribution of moneys to the public insurance fund.
(B) Employers who will abide by the rules of the administrator
and who may be of sufficient financial ability to render certain the
payment of compensation to injured employees or the dependents of
killed employees, and the furnishing of medical, surgical, nursing,
and hospital attention and services and medicines, and funeral
expenses, equal to or greater than is provided for in sections
4123.52, 4123.55 to 4123.62, and 4123.64 to 4123.67 of the Revised
Code, and who do not desire to insure the payment thereof or
indemnify themselves against loss sustained by the direct payment
thereof, upon a finding of such facts by the administrator, may be
granted the privilege to pay individually compensation, and furnish
medical, surgical, nursing, and hospital services and attention and
funeral expenses directly to injured employees or the dependents of
killed employees, thereby being granted status as a self-insuring
employer. The administrator may charge employers who apply for
the status as a self-insuring employer a reasonable application fee to
