If you are NOT an employee, but rather a business-owner -- who needs to provide coverage -- the answer to this depends on what state you are in. Some states, e.g., Ohio, are "exclusive fund" states. If you do not live in an "exclusive fund" state, there will still be a "state fund" in place. You can purchase your coverage there, or from any private carriers that offer WC coverage in your state. You should check with the agent/broker who handles the rest of your business insurance.

It is extremely important that you deal with an "authorized insurer", meaning one that has the requisite authority to conduct business in the State(s) in which you do business and in which you must provide insurance. Because worker's compensation insurance serves the purpose of shielding your business from most individual liability for work-related claims, the failure to do business with an authorized insurer can leave your business individually exposed to worker injury claims. You should contact the Department of Insurance of your State for confirmation that the insurer that you are considering is authorized to transact worker's compensation insurance business.
