Self-Insured Workers' Compensation

The Self-Insured Workers’ Compensation Section is responsible for the certification and regulation of self-insured employers and associations of self-insured employers pursuant to Chapters 616B.300 through 616B.446 of the Nevada Revised Statutes.  The Division of Insurance regulates these entities to ensure financial solvency and viability.  There are two types of programs for self-insured workers’ compensation, as follows:

Self-Insured Employers

Employers must meet a tangible net worth requirement of $2.5 million in order to qualify and remain qualified as a self-insured employer in Nevada.  See the links on the left for information regarding application and statutory requirements for certification as a self-insured employer. To verify coverage, see the Self-Insured Employer List

Self-Insured Groups

There are currently eight self-insured groups in Nevada representing a variety of occupational groups. Employers may choose to become a member of one of these groups to comply with their statutory obligation to maintain workers’ compensation coverage. See the Association List for a list of self-insured groups and their administrators.  For information regarding the formation of a new group, please contact Maurice Fuller at mfuller@doi.nv.gov or (775) 687-0742.
