In addition, the rule adopts the rate for an additional assessment percentage amount that is collected from all self-insured employers as well as all self-insured employer groups to fund the Self-Insured Employer Adjustment Reserve and the Self-Insured Employer Group Adjustment Reserve. These reserves are established to assure benefits are available in the event of a financial failure of a self-insured employer or self-insured employer group. These rules establish the following assessment rates for calendar year 2014:

   The assessment to be levied against insurers, self-insured employers and self-insured employer groups for Calendar Year 2014 shall be 6.2 percent of direct earned premium and the direct earned premium self-insured employers and self-insured employer groups would have paid had they been insured employers.

Self-insured employer groups for the Calendar Year 2014 shall be assessed an additional 1.0 percent to fund the Self-Insured Employer Group Adjustment Reserve.
