  • Title: AASCIF - History
    Descriptive info: History.. The need for a fair and equitable system of workers' compensation evolved out of the industrial revolution.. As economic and industrial activities flourished, the number of work injuries also grew.. The increasing use of machinery, new concepts of producing goods, and the pressure of increased demand for products resulted in more injury problems without solutions for employers and employees.. For the most part, workers who were injured on the job had no recourse other than to sue their employers at common law, an expensive and time-consuming process.. The court system was crowded, causing long delays.. Compensation for injuries was usually insufficient and uncertain.. The employee sometimes was forced to bear the  ...   States and Canada.. Laws were enacted to provide workers injured on the job with prompt, equitable, and guaranteed benefits.. Injured workers received medical care and disability income irrespective of fault.. Employers, in turn, were protected from potentially catastrophic loss by a stated amount of specific benefits for the injuries suffered by the employee.. The worker was prohibited from filing suit while the employer was obligated to pay the mandated benefits.. Only a few large employers had sufficient resources to guarantee injured employees these mandated benefits without endangering solvency.. Therefore, the vast majority of employers purchased insurance protection against these liabilities.. Insurance was a necessity to stabilize the increasing mechanization of the business community..

  • Title: AASCIF - State Funds Emerge
    Descriptive info: State Funds Emerge.. The role of state funds is as longstanding as workers' compensation systems.. With enactment of state workers' compensation laws, the need for workers' compensation insurance created its own set of problems.. Employers feared they would be forced out of business if refused coverage by insurance companies.. They were also fearful that insurance carriers might impose excessive premium rates that would be a financial burden.. High premium rates could negatively affect a state's economy and ultimately limit opportunities for employment.. Another fear was that insurance rates might soar, enabling insurers  ...   provide a stable source of insurance coverage, thus protecting employers from underwriting uncertainties by making it possible to have continuing availability of coverage.. Since state funds were designed to be nonprofit, premiums could be kept at the lowest possible cost for employers consistent with financial solvency.. In addition, the funds were established solely to provide one type of insurance: workers' compensation.. This specialization allowed the funds to concentrate resources, knowledge and expertise in this field of insurance.. Since the early 1900s, availability, affordability, and service have been the key benefits of state funds..

  • Title: AASCIF - Types
    Descriptive info: Types.. While state funds operate exclusively or on a competitive level, depending on the laws under which they were created, they share basic concepts and principles.. Naturally, there are certain points in which these two types of operation differ.. States with exclusive funds require all employers to procure their workers' compensation insurance from the state fund, or, in some jurisdictions, to self-insure.. All Canadian provinces have boards or commissions with complete jurisdictional and administrative powers related to workers' compensation.. These boards are similar in concept and organization to exclusive state funds.. Exclusive state funds develop their own rates and experience by using the services of in-house actuaries or actuarial firms.. Administrative costs are low because they do not issue renewal policies and have no marketing programs.. Competitive funds provide a ready market to  ...   competitive funds pay dividends to policyholders.. Overhead expense ratios of both exclusive and competitive funds are consistently lower than expense factors for private carriers.. Washington was the first state to adopt the state fund approach in 1911; Michigan followed in 1912.. By the end of 1916, six states had established exclusive state funds and seven states had established competitive state funds.. At present, state funds exist in the following states and territories:.. Exclusively by state fund: North Dakota, Puerto Rico and Wyoming.. Exclusively by workers' compensation board: each Canadian province.. By either state fund or authorized self-insurance: Ohio and Washington.. By private insurance, state fund, or authorized self-insurance: Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, New Mexico, New York, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Texas and Utah..

  • Title: AASCIF - Advantages
    Descriptive info: Advantages.. Both exclusive and competitive state funds offer employers advantages.. In addition to offering a constant, reliable, and economical source for workers' compensation insurance, state funds excel in the service area.. In contrast to many private insurers writing workers' compensation insurance, state funds have sufficient premium value in concentrated geographical areas to serve the needs of both large and small employers.. For example, state funds provide ongoing, aggressive safety and loss prevention programs staffed by  ...   in which state funds excel.. The prompt delivery of benefits to injured employees by local adjusters together with evaluations of liability result in savings to employers and the best possible result for the injured person and his family.. State funds also have experienced staffs to monitor treatment and control medical costs.. As a result of this local approach to insurance business, state funds have a significant market share in virtually every state where they are located..

  • Title: AASCIF - Operations
    Descriptive info: Operations.. State funds are, by law, designed to be self-supporting from their premium and investment revenue.. As nonprofit departments of the state, or as independent nonprofit companies, they are able to return dividends or safety refunds to their policyholders.. This reduces the overall cost of workers' compensation insurance.. Numerous court decisions have determined that the assets, reserves, and surplus of the funds are not public funds, but are  ...   nature of a trust to be held for the benefit of insured employers and their injured workers.. Most state funds created in the last 20 years have been organized as mutual insurance companies.. State funds, for the most part, are subject to the same regulatory requirements as private companies, in terms of surplus and reserves.. Major independent accounting and actuarial firms validate the funds' financial position and reserves..
