State law created this affiliated-Insurer model for the purposes of providing a reliable source of Workers Compensation insurance for employers and security for the payment of benefits to covered workers. The law provides for the Insurer to be self-supporting from premium and investment earnings. In providing insurance to cover employers and injured workers for many decades, this Insurance Fund offers a legacy of supporting small business growth in this Western U.S. State's economy, as well as serving residents in need of Workers Compensation coverage and care. Business Challenge The Insurer uses a heavily trafficked public Web portal to help deliver its Workers Compensation insurance services to small- and medium-sized employers (and even a few larger State firms), the injured workers reporting those claims, and the Insurance Agents and Medical Providers affiliated with processing claims and delivering needed care. In addition to providing State Workers Compensation information and guidelines, the Web portal allows users to apply for policies, file claims, request proof of insurance, and process payments. In improving access to this one-stop Workers Compensation Web portal, the Insurer's IT team recently updated the website to support mobile device access for employers, injured workers, and other users. In supporting business operations, the Insurer's Information Technology (IT) team maintains a robust technology environment that includes virtualized platforms operating in its data center.
