Home About Us Benefits of Self Insurance Membership      

TSIA Membership

The Texas Self Insurance Association (TSIA) was established to pass legislation to permit certified self insurance as an alternative to commercial insurance in the workers’ compensation system. That legislation was passed in 1989.  TSIA continued its existence to provide representation on workers’ compensation issues of all large employers before the Texas Legislature, the Texas Department of Insurance (TDI) and the Division of Workers’ Compensation.  While we began as an advocate for the ability to Self-Insure in Texas, our ongoing mission is to create and maintain a Workers’ Compensation system in Texas that promotes business and is fair for our employees
TSIA recognizes the continued need to advocate, educate, and provide a voice for workers’ compensation issues for the business community in Texas.  Whether you take the Certified Self-Insurance route or use a high deductible policy TSIA is a strong advocate for your issues.

During the 2005 legislative session, TSIA played a crucial role in the restructuring and overhaul of the Texas Workers’ Compensation Commission, abolishing existing regulatory structures and moving its function to TDI. In addition, TSIA helped to pass laws that called for the development of carrier and certified self insurer workers’ compensation medical networks.

We invite all employers interested in making Workers’ Compensation better in Texas to explore the benefits of membership in TSIA.
