Do you have a SAIF claim? Have you been denied your rightful compensation? We can help. Here is a little background on SAIF:
Oregon’s State Accident Insurance Fund is a not-for-profit company that provides workers’ compensation insurance. When it was created many years ago, it was a state agency (by the Oregon Legislative Assembly). But, in 1980 the SAIF became America’s first public corporation that specialized in worker’s compensation insurance. SAIF has faced some scrutiny in the past few years. As a state-chartered insurance company SAIF doesn’t pay taxes! Therefore, SAIF can price the insurance policies it sells to employers aggressively, defeat competitors, and make large profits.
Although voters rejected a ballot measure (which would have abolished the corporation) in 2004, SAIF is still a hot topic; debate continues about the management practices of SAIF. Citizens and state senators have questioned the following:
- Is SAIF’s cost savings coming at the expense of denying legitimate claims?
- Is SAIF failing to provide documents and contracts for Sound Economic Policy?
- Is SAIF using Managed Care Organizations (MCOs) to pressure doctors into providing less than optimal medical care?
