The PBA Workers' Compensation Program is an alternative market program established by the Pennsylvania Builders Association in 1999 to help members leverage their group buying power to save on workers' compensation costs. The program is only available to association members and since inception has grown to nearly 600 accounts with almost $9 million in premium volume.
PBA Workers' Compensation Program participants don't:
- Experience large surprise audits
- Pay the same high work comp premium when business is slow
- Burden operating cash flow with a large down payment of premium
