Program Description


The Montgomery County Self-Insurance Program, established under County Code 20-37, provides comprehensive property and casualty insurance for the County and participating agencies. The program is funded through contributions from the agencies, which are based upon an annual actuarial analysis of their exposures and outstanding and projected future claims. The program provides accurate and timely insurance and risk management advice to County Departments and participating agencies and reduces County and participating agency exposure to risk by: comparing the cost of commercially available coverage to evaluate the best method of funding exposure to loss; transferring contractual risk under indemnification/hold harmless agreements; recommending and reviewing contractual insurance requirements for County vendors; avoiding risk; and purchasing commercial insurance policies.
