The basic purpose of the Workers’ Compensation is to provide wage replacement benefits and medical treatment for employees who have been injured or become ill due to a work-related injury or illness. It prevents the employer from bearing the costs of injuries that occur during normal business operations.
NCCI stands for the National Council on Compensation Insurance. Connecticut uses NCCI for the determination of rates on Workers' Compensation Insurance. It is also used to administer the assigned risk plans as well as the reinsurance pools.
Employees benefit from workers comp coverage by having lost wages covered while they are hurt or sick and not able to work. It also pays for medical costs they might incur as a result of the sickness or injury.
Connecticut has the second most expensive rates in the country for Workers' Compensation Insurance. The rates are 55% higher than the national average. The system in connecticut is set up to benefit the employee much more than in other states. This causes less carriers to compete for coverage in Connecticut and rates rise as a result. Also, Connecticut does not have a state fund that competes with private insurers. States that have a strong state fund competing with private insurance companies typically enjoy lower rates.

NCCI Class Codes
Connecticut uses the National Council on Compensation and Insurance (NCCI) for pricing workers' compensation rates. NCCI classifies a risk or workplace exposure within the proper NCCI class code.
Incorrect risk classifications by insurance agents and underwriters often results in a premium that is higher or lower than it should be. As an employer, you have the right to appeal to NCCI for proper classification assignment.
