A self-insuring employer agrees to accept the responsibility to manage the claims as required by the laws and rules controlling self-insurance. The ultimate responsibility for the administration and processing of workers' comp claims resides with the self-insuring employer. The claims administration process includes, but is not limited to:

  • The allowance or disallowance of claims.
  • Payment of compensation and benefits.
  • Maintaining claim files.
  • Making the appropriate information available to the injured worker and/or their representatives for inspection;
  • Assisting employees in filing their applications for benefits and completing the necessary forms for processing a workers' comp claim.

All claims administration processes are subject to an audit by BWC. Refer to SI audit requirements for additional information.
