The Alabama Medical Cannabis Association announced a partnership with the Healthcare Workers’ Compensation Fund (HWCF) and Harmon Dennis Bradshaw. 

Effective immediately, qualified employers who are part of the Alabama Medical Cannabis Association can become part of Alabama’s homogeneous healthcare self-insured fund while providing their employees with best-in-class workers’ compensation coverage and services as they support and care for patients with qualifying, debilitating medical conditions in Alabama.

The collaboration marks a significant milestone in supporting the dedicated professionals within Alabama’s medical cannabis industry.

“This partnership allows employees of the Alabama Medical Cannabis Industry access to excellent workers’ compensation benefits as they perform their duties helping patients in need of care around the state,” said Margaret Nekic, President/CEO of Inspirien, manager of HWCF. 

The Healthcare Workers’ Compensation Self-Insurance Fund (HWCF) is designed exclusively for the needs of Alabama healthcare and healthcare-related entities. Sponsored by the Alabama Hospital Association, HWCF is dedicated to fostering a stable workers’ compensation market, specifically for healthcare and healthcare-related service providers licensed by the State of Alabama.

“It is good to keep business local in the State of Alabama and help provide great worker’s compensation benefits to all of these employees,” said Kelli Powers, President of Decatur Morgan Hospital and HWCF Chair.

Harmon Dennis Bradshaw, boasting over 40 years of experience in the insurance industry, will play a pivotal role in bridging the insurance gap within the medicinal cannabis sector. “HDB’s healthcare specialty developed from years of experience in the insurance business and helping our clients help others. We look forward to bridging the insurance gap in the medicinal cannabis space,” said David Dennis, President of Harmon Dennis Bradshaw.
