We're Here to Represent YOU!

The Mississippi Association of Self-Insurers, MASI, is committed to representing the interests of the self-insured workers' comp and health community by promoting knowledge and providing advocacy in legislative and regulatory arenas. MASI members include group self-insurers and individual self-insured employers.

MASI is strongly supported by many professional organizations that serve self-insurers, such as third party administrators, healthcare providers, attorneys, accountants, banks, rehabilitation counselors and specialists in related services. MASI is overseen by a Board of Directors with a representative from self-insured groups and corporations.

Our Mission

MASI's Mission is very straight forward: We are committed to representing the interests of the self-insured workers’ comp and health community by promoting knowledge and providing advocacy in legislative and regulatory arenas.


MASI does not oppose reasonable and necessary regulations. However, as many self-insured employers and groups know, there are public administrators and lawmakers nationwide who have attempted to enact extensive and burdensome regulations for self-insurers.

To ensure that regulations remain reasonable, self-insurers must be actively and forcefully involved in the development of these regulations. MASI offers self-insurers this opportunity.


MASI was featured as the Top Story in the Mississippi Business Journal’s Insurance Focus, March 14, 2011. Click Here to Read Article.



MASI ANNOUNCES EXPANDED FOCUS-

WORKERS' COMP AND SELF-INSURED HEALTHCARE!

The Obama Healthcare Reform, passed last year by Congress and currently being implemented nationally, has brought many challenges to the self-insured community. As a result, many large employers, who traditionally have looked to MASI for help in workers’ comp, are now struggling to understand the changes now taking place in health insurance. The possible implications of all of this are enormous. Large employers could be greatly impacted by the mandatory changes in healthcare – and costs could escalate considerably.

In response to this pressing need, MASI has expanded its focus. In addition to representing its members in self-insured workers' comp issues, we will now be serving as an advocate for self-insured health as well! MASI has already been working in this direction - a special day focusing on Health Reform was added to the 2010 Fall Conference. And MASI included Healthcare Legislation in its lobbying activities with the Mississippi Legislature this year, even sending updates on Healthcare bills to its members on a routine basis.

MASI LAUNCHES CERTIFICATION PROGRAM FOR WORKERS' COMP PROFESSIONALS

MASI is pleased to announce the historic beginning of a new certification program in Mississippi: the CSIWCP- Certified Self-Insured Workers' Comp Professional - a professional designation intended to promote excellence in Mississippi's self-insured Workers' Compensation community.

This program consists of Four Modules: Work Comp Basics, Claims Management and Medical, Legal Principles, and Loss Prevention and Safety. The modules are spread out over time, and completion of all modules and ongoing continuing education is required to earn and keep the CSIWCP designation.
