PComp provides workers' compensation coverage for employees of counties and county related entities which includes risk control, claims services and training.
PComp is a workers' compensation program developed by the County Commissioners Association of Pennsylvania (CCAP), in conjunction with PCoRP, the Pennsylvania Counties Risk Pool. Faced with rising costs and few commercial alternatives, counties requested that CCAP form a group workers' compensation program for counties. PComp started operations on January 1, 1993. PComp has been approved by the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry to operate as a self insured workers' compensation pool under Act 44 of 1993.
PComp can provide workers' compensation coverage for counties, and for county-related entities such as nursing homes and county joinders. PComp has forty-nine members: thirty-five counties and fourteen county-related entities. County-related entities, for the purposes of membership in PComp, are organizations created and controlled by one or more counties to perform typical county functions.
