About KING

KING is a group-funded workers compensation pool formed under Kansas statute 44-581. KING's formation began in the late 1980's in response to members' need when faced with shrinking insurance options and soaring worker compensation premiums.

KING is a non-profit 501 (c) 4 corporation that began offering workers compensation coverage to members on April 1, 1990. KING now insures more than 60 LeadingAge Kansas members generating between $2-3 Million in premiums annually. LeadingAge Kansas staff provides management services and oversight of the KING program.


Kansas statute allows group-funded workers compensation pools like KING to return unused premium in dividends to members that qualify. To date, KING members have received over $9 Million in dividends over the years.

KING's success is tied directly to loss control. KING provides members professional loss prevention services tailor made to fit member needs. Services include in-service training, accident analysis and regional safety seminars.

STAR 2.0

A cornerstone loss control program for KING members is STAR 2.0 (Safe Transfers And Repositioning).  All KING members incorporate STAR 2.0 training modules for ongoing staff training and new employee orientation. STAR 2.0 may be viewed on the KING website, Member Only section.

KING Early Intervention program provides immediate nurse case management when necessary. This helps the injured employee receive the appropriate care as soon as possible and provides valuable communication to the member and claims adjuster. Each member's "return to work" program is analyzed and fortified so an injured worker can get back on the job quicker.

KING members submit reports of injury electronically to our claims administrator. Each month members are sent via email specific loss reports to help analyze and proactively respond to incident trends. Additionally, all members receive a current monthly loss ratio report for the entire pool that includes previous policy years.  Each year, a Benchmark Report is sent to the member comparing key workers’ compensation performance measurements with members of like size and the entire KING pool.

KING Safety Grant

Annually, KING members may apply for a Safety Grant that will augment the member’s employee/resident safety culture.  The matching grant program provides cash awards in the areas of equipment, training and innovation.  Since 2012, more than $200,000 has been awarded.
