  • Insurance Board of Trustees

    ACCG - GSIWCF is a cooperative self-insured arrangement, created to finance or self-insure workers' compensation coverage. The fund is owned by its members and managed by a seven-member Board of Trustees composed of representatives from participating counties. It is regulated by the Georgia Insurance Commissioners Office.

    ACCG - IRMA is a self-insured pool that members join to provide insurance coverage for property, automobile, general liability, law enforcement liability, public official's liability, crime and boiler and machinery exposures. It is owned by its members and managed by a Board of Trustees appointed from participating counties. Because county governments operate different types of agencies from the private section – such as law enforcement, jails, and roads – their exposures are unique and require specialized coverage.

    ACCG - Group Health Benefits Program is a group program that provides health care coverage and benefits to member counties and their employees. ACCG - GHBP contracts with BlueCross BlueShield of Georgia (BCBSGa) and uses the pooling concept to group all members together, keeping premiums as low as possible. The program also offers a self-insured option for larger counties that want to retain a portion of the risk; BCBSGa claims services and discounts are provided. In addition to health insurance, ACCG - GHBP offers opportunities to reduce the cost of medical care for county inmates through the Inmate Medical Savings Program. Savings may be realized by using BlueCross BlueShield provider networks for routine care or by insuring against large, catastrophic losses.
