The Michigan Self-Insurers’ Association (MSIA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the rights of large-deductible and self-insured employers. To accomplish this, we provide best practice guidance, targeted education for workers’ compensation and disability management professionals, and advocacy for the legislative needs of employers and their employees. These measures help to lower expenses, minimize lost work time, and boost employee productivity.
In 1951, after recognizing the need to provide a forum for workers’ compensation issues in the business community, representatives from several Michigan businesses formed the Michigan Self-insurers Association. They understood how important it was to maintain and safeguard the right to self-insurance. They wanted to educate public officials about business’ perspective on Michigan workers’ compensation laws, while also focusing on ensuring a safe working environment. In 1952, MSIA became a member of the National Council of Self-Insurers.
