This program is responsible for overseeing loss control and safety programs, which are designed to reduce the number and severity of claims and injuries to employees.
The program administers all liability and workers' compensation insurance programs for the city and involves a mix of self-insured and fully-insured components.
On select lines of coverage, the city applies various deductible amounts as a measure to help limit insurance premium costs. The city is self-insured for workers' compensation, with limits to protect against catastrophic losses. A third-party administrator is retained to administer and process claims and to make necessary payments.
The mix of components require direct daily involvement in all aspects of insurance, ranging from knowledge of the insurance market, to interacting with providers, individuals, adjusters, case managers, and others who have a need for assistance or for information.
