An important initiative will be on the ballot. I-1082 would allow private insurers to offer workers compensation coverage to employers without significant oversight or regulation.
- These insurers will be allowed to set their own rates without insurance commission approval unlike any other line of insurance offered in Washington.
- Gives insurance carriers special access to workers doctors throughout the claims process.
- Unlike any other line of insurance offered in Washington, this initiative would exempt these policies from all consumer protection laws and the Insurance Fair Conduct Act.
- Unlike the current workers compensation system, this initiative does not require carriers to fund workplace safety or vocational retraining programs. The cost of those programs would fall exclusively on tax payers.
