Our Proven performance

Our technical knowledge and expertise helps our educational clients reach successful outcomes. The following excerpts are from our case studies. 

Public K-12 school

  • Since 2004 the school district maintained level fixed costs per student over a nine-year period despite a 90% increase in property values, the doubling of umbrella liability limits, and the addition of fiduciary liability and terrorism coverage.
  • Reduced annual self-insurance workers' compensation fixed administration costs by more than $40,000 since 2004 

Public university*

  • Transitioned workers' compensation program from a self-administered paper environment to an outsourced claims administration platform utilizing an online electronic program which gives the university real-time online access to claims data and results
  • Implemented JWF Specialty Return-to-Work program
  • University took advantage of medical cost containment and drastically reduced the utilization of nurse case management to roughly 5% of claims, down from 85% under previous model
