Self-insuring with QBE

Self-insurance services for new and existing self-insurers.

Some larger businesses or councils are eligible to provide their own Workers Compensation insurance, with the approval of their state regulator. Why self-insure? Your client could achieve significant cost savings and gain greater control of their cash-flow, while boosting their employees’ morale and return to work rates.

Getting started

As a self-insurer your client will be responsible for managing their own internal claims process. They’ll also need to be proactive in managing their risk and complying with Workers Compensation and workplace health and safety (WHS) legislation. This requires organisational commitment and individual expertise.

We provide a range of services to help your client identify and meet the requirements relevant to their business. Here’s how we can help:

  • WHS auditing and advice delivered by a team of specialists
  • Performance review and strategy implementation reports
  • Tailored services to suit your client’s needs
  • Guiding your client through the licence application process
  • Transition management.

Ongoing support

Once they’re up and running – or if they’re an existing self-insurer – we can help them administer and manage their Workers Compensation. If outsourcing their claims and injury management works for them, our Australia-wide network of experts can provide third party administration. Outsourcing can save them money and free them up to focus on running their business.

Our other self-insurance services include:

  • WHS and risk management services
  • Customised risk management systems for self-insurance
  • Reporting to the scheme regulator in accordance with licensing requirements
  • Technical and legal advice
  • Claims management advisory service and support
  • Staff training and mentoring
  • Performance and strategic review
  • Excess of loss coverage
  • Transition plans.
