In an article by, reports that the
National Conference of Insurance Legislators plans to investigate efforts by several of the country’s
largest employers to expand the number of states allowing employers to opt out of workers’
compensation coverage. The investigation was prompted by media reports from ProPublica and NPR
criticizing the opt-out plans in Texas and Oklahoma as providing fewer benefits, more restrictions,
and less oversight. The National Conference’s endorsement or disapproval of the opt-out plans will
likely influence future legislation in many states.
