Coverage Levels For Occupational Accident Insurance

Concerning the occupational accident insurance coverage that independent contractors of carriers may acquire pursuant to standards set by the division of insurance.
Session:
2021 Regular Session
Subject:
Insurance
Bill Summary

Under current law, common carriers and contract carriers may use independent contractors for transportation services. The contract must provide for coverage under either workers' compensation or an occupational accident insurance policy that provides "similar coverage" to that available under workers' compensation. "Similar coverage" must meet or exceed standards set by the division of insurance and is defined to require benefits that are at least comparable to the benefits offered under the workers' compensation system. The bill amends the definition of "similar coverage" by repealing this "comparable benefits" requirement.
(Note: This summary applies to this bill as introduced.)
