At Casa Verde, we have Workers Comp insurance to cover us for workers who do 
not have their own
insurance.  It costs about $300/year.  We do try to make sure that workers and 
companies have their
own insurance, but there is the occasional worker or very small company that 
does not.

 We are audited every year; if we would have a high amount of uninsured work 
done, the premium
would increase.
