  • The Comcare Self-insurance Option

    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.

  • Technical Development of Appropriate Claims File Loads

    File loads are integral to claims management and those adopted by insureres and/or claims agents may be a very significant differentiator in key performance indicators. In some cases little technical attention is given to establishing appropriate file loads – in many cases benchmarking against the competition forms the basis. In this paper we present a model methodology to establish appropriate file loads for different claim types and claims streams, concentration on long-tail. The cost benefit effect of reducing file loads is demonstrated by the trade off between increased management expenses and the value achieved through the improvement in claims outcomes.

    Self Insurance Newsletter April 2007 – Self Insurance v Scheme Insurance

    In all Australian states you can choose to insure your company’s workers compensation risk or you can self-insure; either via the state scheme or Comcare. The difference between the cost of insurance premiums and self-insurance can be significant and hence may be of interest to, companies considering self-insurance or self-insurers who want to know how their current costs compare with the premiums they would have to pay for insurance.

    For any particular year the comparison between self-insurance and insurance needs to take into account a number of components.
