Legislative Efforts

The effect of government on a self-insured employer's workers' compensation program is the primary concern of ASIA.

It is ASIA's mission to represent and speak for the interests of our members while closely watching the making of laws and rules in Arizona.

ASIA employs a year-round lobbyist prepared to address issues which arise at a moment's notice that may negatively impact members. ASIA's Government Affairs Committee is comprised of representatives of some of the largest employers in Arizona.


  • Recently, ASIA advocated for and supported efforts to establish a fraud division within the Industrial Commission of Arizona, focused specifically on workers’ compensation fraud.

  • ASIA supported efforts in 2022 to modernize the injury reporting process for injuries that do not require medical treatment and revisions to the experience modification process to address medical-only loss.

  • ASIA engaged in efforts to increase transparency in the Industrial Commission of Arizona’s physician and pharmaceutical fee schedule.

  • Both during and after the COVID-19 pandemic, ASIA supported efforts to increase telehealth opportunities within the workers’ compensation system.

  • ASIA advocated for and supported efforts to revise licensing requirements for workers’ compensation adjustors to remove testing requirements unrelated to workers’ compensation.

  • ASIA supported efforts to modernize the workers’ compensation system to allow for notices of hearings and decisions to be transmitted via email, instead of strictly by mail.
