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 Program Manager.
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 70 members. Nearly 60 percent of the current membership has been in the Fund for more than 15 years. All sizes of hospitals are eligible for participation.
The KHA Workers' Compensation Fund would like to congratulate the following hospital members for winning the Awareness in Workers' Comp and Safety Award. These hospitals were recognized for making workers’ comp and safety a priority in their hospitals. Each hospital received $1,500 to help continue with employee engagement and safety efforts.

Claim management for the KHA Workers' Compensation Fund, Inc., is provided by CCMSI. We understand our members' business and have more than 20 years of established relationships. The KHAWCF and CCMSI work together with our members in managing claims.
CCMSI offers the option to submit First Report of Injuries online through the ICE claim system: https://ice.ccmsi.com/ice/default.aspx
To report an injury, click on "Initial Reports" on the menu bar on the left. Then click on “create a new report." The Initial Report Form will open. Complete as much information as possible. You must complete all the fields marked to be able to submit a new claim. Once you have the form complete, you must click on "Submit Claim" for CCMSI to receive the new report of injury. When you use "Save," this will NOT be submitted to CCMSI to be handled as a claim. Those reports may be saved as a Report Only (RPO) and can always be submitted at a later time if it turns into a claim. CCMSI does not see the Report Only claims, but you may use this feature for tracking purposes to keep a record of incidents internally.
If you would like additional information regarding online reporting or need a user login, please contact Ronni Anderson at (785) 233-7436.
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 complimentary safety consulting services for its members through our in-house Safety Program Manager Chris Saiya. Chris provides valuable information to assist our members in creating a safety culture within their organization.
We offer several safety skills enhancement services such as the "No Lift Patient Transfer Techniques." This training is designed to help your employees safely lift and properly transfer patients. Contact Chris Saiya for additional information at (785) 233-7436.
Don't forget, your Occupational Safety and Health Administration 300A summary form must be posted from Feb.1 through April 30. OSHA requires that employers publicly post their accident statistics, (no personal information.) Refer to OSHA
website for details about the requirement and instructions for completing the summary. In addition to OSHA civil penalties increasing approximately 80 percent in 2016, be prepared to see more investigations and criminal prosecutions of employers for worker endangerment violations due to a new initiative involving the Departments of Justice and Labor. For more information, refer to the Justice of Laborpress release. Contact Chris Saiya for additional information at (785) 233-7436.
