The Trust welcomes inquiries from insurance brokers and agents. The Trust provides worker's compensation coverage in the state of Connecticut and currently insures over 50,000 healthcare and human services employees. Trust members include: hospitals, nursing homes, visiting nurse associations, home healthcare agencies, ambulance services, schools for mentally/physically challenged, group homes, medical services, social service agencies and others.

Injured workers receive exceptional care under the Trust's Managed Care Program which utilizes our own statewide, comprehensive medical network. This program includes many custom features that significantly reduce medical costs and lost work time.

The Trust markets its products and services through insurance brokers and agents. Applications and supporting loss information are sent directly to the Trust and premium quotations are turned around very quickly. Please see How to Obtain a Quote for further information. Accounts are direct billed and installments are offered. Policies may be quoted on either a commission or net basis. Commissions are forwarded to the broker or agent as premiums are received.

The Trust offers some unique advantages not available from standard market carriers including:

  • specialized rates and unique class codes
  • payroll capping at $50,000 per employee at audit
  • premium returns to members
