Insurer role

Under the SRC Act, Comcare is the claims and liability manager for premium paying employers (Commonwealth departments and agencies, and the ACT Government) in the workers’ compensation scheme. This role includes the setting and collecting of premiums specific to each agency. Comcare’s role is comparable to that of an insurer and fund manager as it has the power under the SRC Act to apply these premiums to meet Comcare’s liability and claims management costs.
