What Is CA-SIG
California Alliance of Self-Insured Groups is an association dedicated to support high standards for self-insurance as a reliable alternative for businesses. It is an organization of self-insured group administrators, self-insured groups and industry professionals that has been established to create an accreditation process for program administrators and to encourage best practices in its membership.
Our goals are to participate in the regulatory changes, to work closely with the Office of Self Insured Plans to develop Administrative Standards, and to provide networking and educational opportunities for members.
What's a SIG 2.0
Clay A. Jackson, Esq. is President and Chief Legal Office of Affinity Group Administrators, and President of CA-SIG. Clay has helped draft numerous SIG Regulations, CA-SIG's Standards, and the CA-SIG Regulatory Audit Criteria, currently in use.
In delving deeper into why SIGs and self-insurance can be good for an employer, it's important to note that this method of obtaining and providing workers' compensation coverage to one's employees is not for smaller companies or the faint of heart. Taken individually, there are several principles involved in workers' compensation discussed in the last blog, which must be considered before an employer even thinks about becoming self-insured. These include:
- Risk tolerance,
- Size of organization,
- Finding other like kind and quality companies
And, most of all, an employer's willingness share knowledge and to have its industry competitors be active members of the board of trustees, as well as participants in the SIG.
