In Washington state, Sedgwick has built a trusted, high-value program for state fund clients, based on our commitment to clients, colleagues, quality and results. Our philosophy regarding claims management is simple – manage the process in a way that will successfully and cost-effectively resolve the claim.

In Ohio, CompManagement, Inc. (a Sedgwick company) is Ohio’s leading claims administrator.
