Title 23. LABOR AND WORKERS' COMPENSATION
Chapter 23.30. ALASKA WORKERS' COMPENSATION ACT
Sec. 23.30.025. Approval and coverage of insurance policies.


AK Stat § 23.30.025 (through 27th Leg Sess 2012) What's This?

(a) An insurer may not enter into or issue a policy of insurance under this chapter until its policy form has been submitted to and approved by the director of the division of insurance. The director of the division of insurance may not approve the policy form of an insurance company until the company files with it the certificate of the director of the division of insurance showing that the company is authorized to transact the business of workers' compensation insurance in the state. The filing of a policy form by an insurance company with the division of workers' compensation for approval constitutes, on the part of the company, a conclusive and unqualified acceptance of the provisions of this chapter, and an agreement by it to be bound by them.

(b) All policies of insurance companies insuring the payment of compensation under this chapter are conclusively presumed to cover all the employees and the entire compensation liability of the insured employer employed at or in connection with the business of the employer carried on, maintained, or operated at the location or locations set forth in such policy or agreement. A provision in a policy attempting to limit or modify the liability of the company issuing it is wholly void except as provided in this section.

(c) An insurer extending coverage required under this chapter by specifying Alaska in the other states section or similar provision of the insurance policy shall provide notice to the department under AS 23.30.085.
