How Workers Compensation Consultants Save Companies Money
Hiring a workers compensation consultant can be a quick way to lower workers compensation costs.
A workers comp consultant will analyze your workers comp costs to see if the insurance company has made any mistakes.
If they are able to identify and correct insurance company errors, your firm will be entitled to a premium recovery. In other words, the insurance company will retroactively credit you for any past premium overpayments.
If you think insurance companies don't make mistakes, think again. In the area of workers compensation insurance, they can easily make mistakes on workers comp classification codes, workers comp experience modification factors, and on the periodic workers comp payroll audits.
These mistakes are quite commonplace and they result in business owners being charged higher premiums than they should be.
