Through a blend of self-insurance and excess insurance, ICRMA provides statutory workers’ compensation coverage to Program members. Members pay an annual contribution based on actuarially determined losses, administrative expenses, and excess insurance. The Workers’ Compensation Program Manager provides claims oversight, conducts periodic claim file reviews, reports losses to the excess carrier, and reviews the performance of the program TPA.
Because each public agency has a unique risk appetite, members can determine how much risk they are willing to accept by selecting a member retained limit of $350,000, $500,000, $750,000, $1 million, or higher. The ICRMA pooled retention is $1 million for the 2022-2023 program year. The chart below shows how the various loss layers are funded from the members’ retentions through the excess insurance.

When an employee is injured, he/she is instructed by the member to call the Nurse Triage line at (877) 223-9310. A registered nurse completes a series of triage questions which will determine whether or not a medical referral to the city’s industrial clinic needs to be made. A copy of the report generated by the nurse is e-mailed to the City contact, ICRMA’s program manager, and to the city’s TPA.
