What Is SAIF?
Oregon’s State Accident Insurance Fund is a not-for-profit company that provides workers’ compensation insurance to employers across the state. Thirty-five percent of Oregon’s workforce is insured by SAIF. When it was created many years ago, it was a state agency. But in 1980, SAIF became America’s first public corporation specializing in workers’ compensation insurance.
In recent years, SAIF has become a topic of debate and public scrutiny. As a state-chartered insurance company, SAIF pays no taxes. This means the company can price the insurance policies it sells to Oregon employers aggressively, defeating its competitors and turning large profits.
Although Oregon voters rejected a ballot measure in 2004 that would have abolished the corporation, debate continues about whether SAIF is providing workers’ compensation insurance fairly and justly in Oregon. Both citizens and public officials, including state senators, have questioned SAIF’s management practices, including the following:
- Is SAIF’s cost-saving business model causing legitimate claims to be denied?
- Is SAIF failing to provide documents and contracts in favor of higher profits?
- Is SAIF using Managed Care Organizations (MCOs) to pressure doctors into providing less than optimal medical care?
