Workers’ Comp Insurance

In 1992, members formed the Workers’ Compensation Insurance Dividend Trust (IDT), now a well-established group of clients that meet to review losses and recommend ways to improve as a group. For those RCPA members who qualify and seek to work with fellow members to reduce and mitigate losses, this is a great mechanism to control workers’ compensation costs.

Hearten (formerly known as the PARF IDT Workers Compensation Program) offers a pay as you go billing option; stable rates and competitive pricing; aggressive claims handling and medical cost management, high-quality loss control and risk management services and training; insurance company stability; peer-to-peer collaboration; and a social rehab facility subclass. Since 2002, the program underwriter has requested the approval of subclass code 5941 (Social Rehab Facility) for all headquarters staff of such facilities. Rates correspond to filed rates for code 953 (Clerical Office Employees). Without the subclass, the PCRB requires all employees, including office staff, to be included in class code 941.

Hearten is a member-owned captive program where policies are underwritten and issued by an “A” AM Best® rated insurance carrier – Eastern Alliance Insurance Group (EAIG). The program requires upfront collateralization, and is reinsured on both a specific and aggregate basis, to help protect members from additional costs due to exceedingly adverse claim experiences, either individually or collectively. Underwriting profit and investment income can be returned depending on the performance of the group and the individual member.

PCPA Group Workers’ Compensation Trust


Workers’ Comp Insurance

The PCPA Group Workers’ Compensation Trust was formed in 1994 to provide workers’ compensation insurance coverage to human services organizations in Pennsylvania. The trust is owned and governed by its members, under the leadership of a board of directors, elected by and from the trust’s participating employers. All professional contractors utilized for administrative services, claims management, risk management/loss control services, and reinsurance are selected by and report to the board of directors. The board also retains an insurance professional as the trust’s executive director to represent the board and the trust members’ interests in daily operational matters.

Licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Insurance, the trust now serves approximately 50 member organizations. RCPA members and non-members alike may apply for membership in the trust utilizing the broker of their choice. A non-refundable capital deposit is not required to join the trust. Organizations applying must meet actuarial and membership requirements designed to enhance the financial health of the trust.

The structure and practices of the trust assure an informed view of the needs of its members and their employees. The results are competitive rates, controlled costs, and personalized risk management to limit losses. For trust members, success translates into an ongoing solution for workers’ compensation insurance with possible return on invested contributions.
