Florida rates are established and approved annually by the Florida Department of Workers Compensation. Rates are based on recommendations from NCCI. All carriers are required to charge the same manual rates for coverage in Florida, making it the only non-monopolistic state that requires set rates for insurance companies. Therefore, the only additional components of pricing Florida workers compensation policies include experience modifiers, drug credits, safety credits, and carrier discounts.

Florida is under the Jurisdiction of the National Council for Compensation Insurance (NCCI) and utilizes the Florida JUA (Joint Underwriting Association) to place Assigned Risk polices within the State Fund.

FWCJUA rates are considerably higher than rates on the private market. Our agency does not place business with the JUA because we are focused on finding lower cost coverage for Florida business owners.
