BACKGROUND INFORMATION

 

Previous Commission action/date:  N/A

 

Background:  Of the numerous insurance policies the Baldwin County Commission has secured, one such policy involves workers’ compensation coverage. The Commission’s current policy which provides workers’ compensation coverage has been paid to run for the term of October 1, 2018 to October 1, 2019. The workers’ compensation policy is carried through the Association of County Commissions of Alabama Workers’ Compensation Self Insurers’ Fund (ACCA WCSIF).  The October 1, 2018 to October 1, 2019, premium for this policy as paid by the Commission to the ACCA was $726,159.86.

 

The action before the Commission today is to approve payment to the ACCA related to the continuance of the workers’ compensation coverage for the Commission and for the period of October 1, 2019 to October 1, 2020; the payment requested to be authorized to the ACCA is $751,579.51.  This represents an increase of $25,419.65 from the Fiscal Year 2019 premium contribution of $726,159.86.  Furthermore, the aforesaid authorization will allow the Chairman to sign any related correspondence and/or instruments and for the Clerk/Treasurer to make the interim payment of $751,579.51, before October 31, 2019, so the workers’ compensation coverage does not lapse.
