South Huntington Union Free School District


Fewer claims and greater investment returns—PMA helps improve school district's workers' compensation program

The Challenge

South Huntington Union Free School District is comprised of seven schools located in Suffolk County, Long Island, New York. The district instructs a diverse 6,000-student population, employs 1,200 staff members, and occupies 11 buildings totaling more than one million square feet. They look to PMA as a risk management partner who can help improve workplace safety and reduce the district's overall workers' compensation program costs.

Partnership Results

  • $1.1 million in recoveries since 2007
  • Workers' comp claims reported to PMA in 1.1 days
  • $265,000 in medical bill and pharmacy savings 
  • Workers' comp program costs down 18%
  • District utilizes PMA Cinch for 24/7 claims reporting and analysis, and PMA Websource for online safety training 

“PMA is wonderful to work with. They are the best third-party administrator I've worked with in this business.”

— Lawrence S. Light, Assistant Superintendent for Business, South Huntington Union Free School District
