OKLAHOMA Sale of State Workers Comp Agency Opposed by Attorney General

A plan to sell Oklahoma's workers' compensation insurance agency is opposed Attorney General Drew Edmondson because businesses may then be required to pay higher rates. Edmonson said pending legislation would lead to privatization of CompSource Oklahoma, bad news for businesses and consumers. 

CompSource was formed in 1933 to keep workers' comp prices affordable and competitive. It serves as a last resort for high-risk employers who are unable to afford private insurance.According to Edmondson, if CompSource Oklahoma is acquired by another insurer, prices could increase and new and beginner companies may not be able to afford workers' comp insurance.(workersxzcompxzkit)
 
 
CompSource reportedly writes approximately 35% the state’s workers' comp policies.
