CA Contractors Network



California’s largest employers have long used self insurance as a way to beat the high cost of workers’ compensation. Now groups of smaller employers can pool their resources to significantly reduce their workers’ compensation costs with a Self Insured Group. A Self Insured Group can provide smaller employers with the same market advantages as larger employers.

California Contractors Network Self Insured Group is a Non-Profit California Mutual Benefit Corporation, formed solely for the purpose of Group Self Insurance, under Chapter 8, subchapter 2 of the California Code of Regulations. Savings, safety programs, aggressive claims handling and – most importantly – profits returned to you are just some of CCN’s benefits.

California Contractors Network Self Insured Group serves building contractors working primarily in the 17 SIC Code throughout California. CCNSIG started in June of 2003, and has since grown to become one of the state’s largest Self Insured Groups by volume, and certainly one of the most proactive when it comes to claims management and loss control.

All of this becomes what we call the “Self Insured Advantage.”

Program Advantages

Self Insurance is not new. For many years, California’s largest employers have used self insurance as a way to beat the high cost of workers’ comp coverage. Currently, there are more than 1500 large employers and more than 400 public entities self insured.

The law allows groups of smaller employers to pool their resources to significantly reduce their workers’ comp costs through a Group Self Insurance program.

Such a Group can provide smaller employers with the same market advantages as larger employers.

Whether it’s a job site training session for 5 supervisors, or a seminar for 500 field workers, CCN will help train your workers, supervisors, foremen and leadmen to implement safety programs that will keep your employees as safe as possible.

CCN believes that safety training reduces losses in two ways:

First, safety training can cut down on the frequency of accidents. If there are less accidents overall, there are less claims to be paid and the fund is more profitable. That can help keep costs low, and even reduce costs over time.

Second, safety training and implementation of safety measures can reduce the severity of accidents. These are catastrophic losses in which a worker is killed or permanently injured. Cutting down the number of severe accidents will reduce costs, as well.

Self Insured Solutions believes that injury claims must be handled promptly, professionally and aggressively. Aggressive claims management starts the minute a claim occurs. It entails gathering information from supervisors and witnesses, getting a drug test performed, and verifying that the claim occurred legitimately and that the worker is due benefits. It also means working with the medical providers to ensure proper, complete and adequate care while avoiding over-treatment and unnecessary procedures.

Self Insured Solutions only works with the best claims managers in the state – experts in the kind of hands-on claims management you need to manage construction and agricultural risks.

Aggressive anti-fraud policies save self insured groups on claims.

Self Insured Solutions believes that all legitimately injured workers should get the benefits they deserve, and do so promptly and without hassles. On the other hand, all fraudulent claims should be investigated, shut down, and fraud perpetrators referred for prosecution. To do that, we insist that any TPA we work with investigate any and all suspicious claims, perform clandestine surveillance on suspected fraud practitioners, and shut these claims down and seek reimbursement or even send those folks to jail whenever possible.
