How do you know if a workers’ comp captive is the solution your company needs? First, you need to know what it is.
What is a Workers’ Comp Captive?
Captives can be considered a hybrid of both a traditional workers’ comp insurance policy and self-insurance. With traditional insurance, you work with an insurance company who coordinates the plan, bears the risk but also reaps any rewards. If your company is self-insured, it is responsible for all the plan coordination and risk, but if well-managed, can also turn a profit.
Traditional workers’ comp coverage is typically the biggest expense most businesses have, after payroll and benefits. But because self-insurance requires specific expertise and management, it is an option beyond the reach of small and even most mid-size companies. A captive allows these businesses to band together to achieve economies of scale that allow them to share the potential risk and profit inherent with self-insurance, and hire professional management. The expertise and efficiencies of such an arrangement can tip the scales, turning an expense into a profit center.
