Program Description

  Risk Management

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 pays all claims for Self Insured Workers' Compensation, General and Auto Liability, Auto Physical Damage, and Property matters. 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; and recommending and reviewing contractual insurance requirements for County agreements. The Program also purchases commercial insurance policies. The Program maintains a contract agreement with a Third Party Claims administrator to handle all claims submitted to the County and agencies - including Workers' Compensation, General Liability, Automobile Liability, Auto Physical Damage, and Property damage.
