"Comp Alliance" is a group self-insured workers' compensation program, designed exclusively for municipal corporations (including school districts) in New York State. Sponsored by the Association of Towns of the State of New York and the New York State Conference of Mayors (NYCOM), the Comp Alliance has more than 215 participating municipalities and school districts. Its main purpose remains today what it was in 1994 — to ensure that its members are able to meet their long-term workers' compensation liabilities while maintaining stable funding contributions.
As part of a group self-insurance program members pool their resources together to provide workers' compensation coverage for their respective employees.
The Comp Alliance is committed to building the program in stability and strength, ensuring that funding levels are adequate now and for the future and that their members receive professional and courteous service. We support these goals with comprehensive and integrated services in the area of claims, risk management and underwriting.
At the Comp Alliance we know that the manner in which claims are handled has a tremendous impact on the overall costs. Our claims department is staffed with experienced workers' compensation examiners who are responsive to our members' needs.
A large part of reducing workers' compensation loss costs is avoiding accidents in the first place. A well constructed risk management program can significantly reduce plan expenses by helping members create a safer work environment. The Comp Alliance provides its members with a comprehensive array of risk management and loss control services especially designed to address challenges in the municipal sector.
Underwriting members in a group program goes well beyond a simple calculation of funding. At the Comp Alliance we analyze all existing members and new accounts seeking a commitment to the philosophy of the program and dedication to the standards set in our risk management program. Our member services team increases the overall satisfaction of our members by providing responsive, professional and personalized service.
Our Mission — to protect our members from long-term exposure to costly workers' compensation claims by providing a fiscally sound, comprehensive workers' compensation program that maintains the stable pricing necessary for municipal budgets.
