If you are looking for an alternative to commercial Workers’ Compensation policies, you should consider group self-insurance. Cross Insurance TPA, Inc. is located in New Gloucester, Maine and provides services for businesses and self-insured management programs for workers’ compensation. Self-insurance may not be for everyone, but it typically provides more control and stability over your workers’ comp program, competitive pricing, and the potential for premium refunds. Cross Insurance TPA, Inc. currently provides services to trusts throughout the state of Maine in industries such as manufacturing, construction, forestry, social services, and education.
Typically in a self-insured trust, group members pay premium dollars into a trust fund. Generally, the funds are used to pay claims and administrative costs. Depending on a variety of factors they can also sometimes accrue interest. In many models, if there are surplus funds, they are refunded back to group members. Since the passing of the federal Employee Retirement Income Security Act in 1974, self-insurance has become a possible option for many employers.
