KHA Workers' Compensation Fund
Print

KHA Workers' Compensation Fund, Inc., is a taxable workers' compensation pool operated by the Kansas Health Service Corporation. This fund was formed in 1991. It is organized in accordance with the workers' compensation statutes of the State of Kansas.

KHA Workers' Compensation Fund's primary objective is to provide moderately priced workers' compensation insurance to Kansas Hospital Association members. Customer service is enhanced by the Fund administrator and Safety coordinator.

The individual pool members for each plan year are considered the owners of the KHA-WC pool for that year. They are eligible for premium refunds and are responsible for potential assessments. A separate board of directors, comprised of pool member representatives, governs KHA Workers' Compensation Fund.

The Fund has approximately 77 members. Almost 75 percent of the current membership has been in the Fund for nearly 20 years. All sizes of hospitals are eligible for participation.

Third Party Administration:

Claim management for the KHA Workers' Compensation Fund, Inc., is provided by CORnerstone Risk Solutions - a division of IMA. In-house claim administration is an important feature of membership in the KHA-WC Fund. We believe it brings added value because we understand our members' business and have an established relationship. We work together with our members in managing claims.

Safety:

We believe that workplace safety is achieved by promoting safe behaviors. Every member of an organization should recognize the importance of safety as part of their job performance. The KHA Workers' Compensation Fund provides safety consulting services for its members through our in-house Safety Coordinator Chris Saiya. Chris provides valuable information to assist our members in creating a safety culture within their organization.
