My employer is self-insured? What does that mean?

Self-Insured employers are not covered under the state fund, they pay all benefits themselves and are usually large employers.  Since they pay all benefits themselves they tend to fight harder to not pay.  We have successfully represented clients employed by self-insured employer’s such as Sacred Heart Medical Center, Boeing, Kaiser Aluminum, Wal Mart, Spokesman Review, Safeway, Trans Systems, Waste Management, STA and Triumph Systems.
