Alabama is an NCCI state like most other states. This means that NCCI oversees employers' experience modifiers and collects all data for the state including claims, class codes, premiums, and payroll. NCCI analyzes this data and makes annual recommendations to carriers and to the Alabama Department of Insurance. Every Insurance company is required to file their rates with the state for approval.
Workers' compensation rates may still vary for the same class codes in Alabama because insurance companies can apply policy credits and debits up to 25% to adjust their filed rates. More discounts may also be added to a policy depending on the size of payroll and the overall claims experience.
