Public Entities Self-Insurance Programs
Public entities self-insurance programs qualifying for exemption from the insurance code
ORS 731.036 lists various "persons" that are completely exempt from application of the Insurance Code. Each subsection describes the type of entity and the specific activity that qualifies for exemption.
The Insurance Division requires the entity to file documentation BEFORE establishing the self-insurance program that proves it meets all the requirements for exemption.
The public entity should plan to file the documentation with the Insurance Division 3 to 6 months before implementation of the self-insurance program.
