Tallahassee, FL – To assist Florida business owners with obtaining workers’ compensation coverage to protect their employees from the detrimental impacts of on-the-job injuries, the Florida Division of Workers’ Compensation has launched an online insurance company database called the Coverage Assistance Program (CAP). This new database allows employers to easily search for insurance companies that are actively offering workers’ compensation policies for their industry type.
“Ensuring that Florida businesses have proper workers’ compensation coverage is crucial to the success of the entire workers’ compensation system,” said Tanner Holloman, Director of the Division of Workers’ Compensation. “Employers can use the information provided in the CAP to inform conversations with their insurance agents and to help facilitate a smoother, faster policy purchasing process.”
The Division of Workers’ Compensation works to ensure that injured workers have adequate access to timely medical care, that claims are adjusted and reimbursed timely, and that health care providers are compensated fairly for electing to participate as a workers’ compensation care provider. The Division also aims to provide the resources necessary to help all participants in the process remain in compliance with Florida workers’ compensation laws.
