Doesn’t my agent do this work for me?
Insurance Agents are not trained to perform this type of work. Keep in mind their job is selling insurance for their employer. The process of reviewing workers compensation audits for errors is a complicated and time consuming one and most insurance agents are paid on their premium production. Many direct writing agents are limited in their capacity to accomplish corrections to your audits.
Are workers compensation audit and code errors that common?
Yes. Approximately 25% to 50% of business owners are overcharged due to audit, code, premium calculation or e-mod errors.
How much money can I expect to get back if an error is found?
That depends on several factors. The amount of your normal workers compensation premium is very important. If the normal error in premium audit calculations is say 30% and your premium is $5,000 you could see as much as $1,500 returned. However there is never a guarantee that there is an error in your audit. But what if your normal premium is say $50,000 and a 30% error is found. Your premium overcharge would be $15,000. That sure would be nice deposit back in your company checking account! In general, the larger your normal workers compensation premium the larger potential for return. Don’t be fooled. Errors are made on all accounts.
Will a discovery of an error effect my workers compensation insurance or business insurance coverage?
Yes and No. Yes… The discovery and correction of an error can reduce the premium on your current workers compensation policy and on all future workers compensation policies while there is no effect to your coverage. No… Workers Compensation premium generation is determined by specific rules as established by NCCI, State Department of Insurance or other governing sources. It’s these rules that must be followed. Insurance companies must follow these rules. Making corrections to an insurance company error will in no way effect your insurance coverage.
Will my business insurance agent get mad at me if I use your service?
An agent who is truly working in your best interest should welcome Workers Compensation Consultants review. Keep in mind our only interest is to find and correct errors, not to replace your insurance agent. Many times we are contacted by an agent who needs help correcting a code or audit problem on one of their workers comp clients. We work for you and your company.
How can I tell if there is an error?
That’s what we do. It can be difficult to determine errors. However here are a few things to look for:
- Have you been through a workers compensation audit.
- Do you feel you have been subjected to an adverse audit.
- Do you feel your audit includes mistakes made by the auditor or insurance company.
- Have you had your workers compensation job classifications changed by the auditor or insurance company.
- Has your business merged with another company or changed ownership.
- Has your business expanded into other states.
- Is your experience modification date different from your policy period.
- Do you have claims that are lingering and not being agressively adjusted on your behalf.
- Have you been charged for uninsured subcontractors.
- Are you a contractor who uses different job classifications.
If you have experienced any of these situations you should give us a call. You may have been overcharged on your workers compensation audit.
