Most states require some form of workers compensation insurance and carry different laws regarding benefits.
Work Comp coverage offers benefits to employees of companies and must be purchased by employers.
Section 3C: Other States
Coverage part 3 of the workers compensation insurance policy details the “other states” provision possibly included in a workers compensation insurance policy.
This section of the policy is straightforward and resembles personal auto insurance, whereby the policy will automatically adapt to the limits and provisions of any state where your employees are working, regardless of what state the policy was originally designed for.
Example: You own a construction company in Illinois, where you originally purchased your workers compensation policy, and bid on and won a job in Missouri, requiring your employees to work across state lines.
In the event one of your employees suffers bodily injury resulting from a work-related accident, your Illinois policy would automatically adjust to the necessary limits and provisions of Missouri state law.
However, the insured employer would not have to pay a higher premium above and beyond that dictated on the original policy.
As mentioned earlier, each state has different laws, so be sure to contact your employer or state department of insurance to determine what benefits you may be eligible for as a result of a work-related accident.
