Excessive premium costs, undisciplined claims management and the need for quality medical care has prompted many Texas businesses to provide occupational injury benefits as a Texas nonsubscriber. Texas nonsubscribers develop programs to provide occupational injury benefits without the use of traditional workers’ compensation insurance.
More than 400 representatives from Texas’ nonsubscriber market gathered in Austin at the Texas Association of Responsible Nonsubscribers (TXANS) 17th Annual Nonsubscriber Conference & Exhibition to discuss responsible nonsubscription in Texas. A highlight of the conference was a discussion of nonsubscriber benefit plans led by Dallas lawyer Timothy S. Perkins, Director, Underwood Perkins, P.C.
Mr. Perkins drew from twenty-three years of experience providing legal services to Texas nonsubscribers as he led a panel of Texas attorneys in a discussion of the progression of nonsubscriber benefit plans and their relationship to the Employee Retirement Income Security Act-ERISA.
Mr. Perkins assists employers with analyzing the viability of nonsubscription, the development and maintenance of nonsubscriber programs and legal defense. His nonsubscriber clients include nationally recognized hotels, restaurants, manufacturers, food processors, motor carriers, distributors and more.
