North Carolina Laws & Regulations
North Carolina Self-Insurance Security Association
The North Carolina Self-Insurance Security Association, successor to the North Carolina Self-Insurance Guaranty Association (the “Association”) is a non-profit, unincorporated association, created by the North Carolina General Assembly through the 1986 enactment of N.C.G.S §97-130, et seq. (the “Security Act”). Pursuant to the Security Act, the Association’s Members are all individual companies (“individual self-insurers”) and groups of companies (“group self-insurers”) that have been approved to self-insure their workers’ compensation claims liabilities by the North Carolina Department of Insurance. All approved individual self-insurers and group self-insurers are required, by statute, to be Members of the Association.
North Carolina Association of Self-Insurers
The North Carolina Association of Self-Insurers is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the interests of employers self-insured for workers’ compensation. Membership is also open to employers who have large deductibles with commercial insurers as they have the same interests as self-insured employers. Many of the state’s largest employers belong to our association, along with claims professionals and legal firms active in workers’ compensation. Our membership also includes rehab specialists, TPA’s, surveillance professionals, and a number of other supporting members. The association keeps its members informed of legislative developments and changes in Workers’ compensation regulations. Our annual three-day conference is an excellent opportunity to network with peers and exchange news and views on issues of mutual interest.
North Carolina Medical Society
The oldest professional organization within the state, the North Carolina Medical Society (NCMS) began in 1849 when 25 physicians united to advance medical science and to raise the standards for their profession. Today, we are more than 12,000 strong and champion the same goals and ideals while representing the interests of physicians and protecting the quality of patient care.
