Denver (AP) - Colorado lawmakers are expected to hear from injured workers about their experiences with Workers' Compensation.
Monday's session is part of a series of meetings by an interim committee of the legislature to look into Pinnacol Assurance, a state-chartered workers compensation insurer.
Lawmakers say they want to make sure employers are paying the lowest premiums practical.
Lawmakers say they also want to make sure injured workers are getting the care and benefits they need to get back to work, and that Pinnacol is stable and solvent.
Pinnacol is the state's workers' compensation insurer of last resort. It came under scrutiny this year because of its huge reserves, which now stand at $580 million.
