MARO administers a self-insured workers’ compensation insurance fund for its members. The program has been in operation since 1988 and has paid back over $21 million in dividends and discounts – over 1/3 of premium collected has been returned to our members. Many Fund members have enjoyed discounts ranging from 15% to 95%, based on their loss history with the fund.
The fund is governed by a board of trustees elected by the members of the fund at the Annual Meeting held at the MARO Spring Leadership Conference. Claim service is provided through a third party administrator, Broadspire. Excess insurance is purchased from Midwest Employers Casualty Company rated A+ by A.M. Best. Loss prevention consulting and safety audits are provided by Gloria McMullan of the MARO staff.
The fund operates under authority granted by the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs/Workers’ Compensation Agency. Fund investments are handled by Smalley Investments.
