During its annual meeting last week, the Pennsylvania Homecare and Human Services Workers’ Compensation Trust Fund presented its annual Most Improved Safety Award to CareGivers America.

Prior to the full Trust meeting, the Board of Directors held its annual meeting and elected Karen Kulp, President/CEO, Home Care Associates, as Board Chair.

The Workers’ Compensation Trust was established in 2006 and currently has 39 member organizations. PHA was instrumental in establishing the trust in response to members’ concerns over rising workers’ compensation premiums.

Having a workers’ compensation insurance company that provides coverage for similar entities – homecare and other community-based organizations – enables it to target risk management efforts. The trust also has very aggressive claims management, with oversight and guidance provided by the trust board, made up of representatives from homecare agencies.

For more information about the trust, contact administrator Greg Famous, president of AVI Risk Services at (610) 975-6053.
