The Department does not track characteristics of settled self-insured claims, and is not a party to self-insured claim settlement. We don’t know how many workers have requested their self-insured employers to negotiate a structured settlement. By monitoring the Board of Industrial Insurance Appeals orders, we can see that as of August 31, 2012, of the 17 self-insured settlement agreements submitted for Board approval, the Board approved three.
