What is Workers' Compensation?
The basic purpose of the Workers’ Compensation is to provide wage replacement benefits and medical treatment for employees who have been injured or become ill due to a work-related injury or illness. It prevents the employer from bearing the costs of injuries that occur during normal business operations.

Employees benefit from workers comp coverage by having lost wages covered while they are hurt or sick and not able to work. It also pays for medical costs they might incur as a result of the sickness or injury.
The Kansas Insurance Department administers what is referred to as the Workers’ Compensation Fund for the state of Kansas through its Workers’ Compensation Program. This might also be referred to as the state fund or the assigned risk. Kansas has a state fund that competes with private providers in an attempt to increase competition and force lower rates for business owners. This is one reason why Kansas has workers compensation rates 17 percent lower than the national average.
