    The Comcare Self-Insurance Option | ANZIIF Journal

    With the Australian Government actively promoting self-insurance under Comcare, some national employers are now considering whether the transfer from a state scheme to Comcare would be advantageous. Prospective Comcare self-insurers need to evaluate the combined risks and benefits of funding workers’ compensation benefits under Comcare, operating under the national OH&S system, and the upfront costs of exiting state workers’ compensation schemes.

  • Finity
    The Comcare Self-insurance Option Final

    The Australian government has moved to adopt some of the Productivity Commission’s recommendations for improving national consistency of workers’ compensation and OH&S.

    The particular direction being pursued is to facilitate access by employers to the OH&S and workers’ compensation provisions for Commonwealth employees through self-insurance under the Commonwealth agency, Comcare.

    We assess the Comcare self-insurance option against the alternatives of remaining under separate state jurisdictions as either an insured or self-insured employer. We particularly focus on:

    – differences in the OH&S and workers’ compensation frameworks

    – cost differentials

    – implications for the state workers’ compensation schemes if employers exit to Comcare.
