Florida’s Workers’ Compensation insurance premiums have increased – are you in a position to still get money back on your premium?
On September 27, 2016, The Florida Office of Insurance Regulation (OIR) approved an overall statewide workers’ compensation insurance rate increase of 14.5% which took effect December 1, 2016. The rate increase is in response to two recent Supreme Court rulings undoing reforms passed in 2003 and rocking the state’s workers’ compensation system.
We have an exclusive solution to this new ruling for ECMA members – The Emerald Coast Medical Association Workers’ Compensation Insurance Program, offered through Danna-Gracey and AmTrust, which offers maximum possible dividends of 30% – you could end up saving 15.5% on your WC coverage even with the rates increasing!
The workers’ compensation rates are set by the State of Florida – you are going to pay the same no matter where you choose to obtain coverage. However, through the ECMA/AmTrust program, you could be entitled to annual dividends on your premiums!
