The Alaska Workers' Compensation Act requires each employer having one or more employees in Alaska to obtain workers' compensation insurance, unless the employer has been approved as a self-insurer. Employers are required to provide proof of workers' compensation coverage to the Division of Workers' Compensation. As such, insurance agents should be able to explain to their clients how workers compensation in Alaska works, understand their clients' past and potential claims, then be able to get quotes for coverage.
Insurance Agents also should understand the state's workers comp rules and requirements, how to deal with accommodation and return-to-work requests, management of the claim, proper account handling procedures, and how to fight fraudulent claims.
