Florida Workers Comp Rates

Florida workers' compensation rates could dramatically increase in 2016.

According to a recent study conducted by the OR Department of Consumer Business and Services, Florida ranked 28th in the average cost for state workers comp premium rates. Florida rates are around 2% below those of the median state. This is a slight decline from the prior study done in 2012, when Florida ranked 29th. See updates on Florida rates below: Florida rates may increase nearly 20% before the end of the year (2016).

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 2016 Rates Set to Explode

Posted September 2016

Florida utilizes the NCCI (National Council on Compensation Insurance) as the states Rating Bureau since NCCI is located in Boca Raton, Florida. Every year NCCI makes recommendations to the state Insurance Commissioner for the next years state rates. In fact, NCCI recommended a 3.3% decrease for 2016 earlier this year, but it was disapproved by the Department of Financial Services. Now rates may increase significantly in FLorida.

We are currently waiting on the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation to make a decision on a recommended 19.6% rate increase in workers compensation rates. The National Council of Compensation Insurance (NCCI) has proposed that the dramatic increase should take effect on October 1, 2016. The recommended change is a result of two major court rulings: One in April where the FL Supreme Court ruled the mandatory attorney fee schedule for workers compensation was unconstitutional, and a second state Supreme Court ruling in June that ruled the 104-week statutory limitation on temporary total disability benefits was unconstitutional. NCCI expects the attorney fee ruling to result in a 15% increase in workers compensation expenses, while the temporary disability limitation has created a projected 2.2% increase. The NCCI is also requesting a 1.8% rate increase related to health care provider reimbursement rulings.

Although the change is proposed for 10/1/16, it appears that the actual effective date will be moved back if the Office of Insurance Regulation approves the change. It is important to note that the Office of Insurance Regulation could also approve a smaller rate increase than proposed.


Florida Rates May Increase More than 15% in 2016

Posted April 2016

An amended rate filing by NCCI later this year is expected to increase Florida workers' compensation rates by more than 15% on August 1, 2016. A recent (June 2016) Florida supreme court ruling struck down limits on attorney's fees with regard to workers comp litigation and civil cases. The ruling overturned a prior law preventing attorneys from challenging fees. Florida attorneys have argued that adequate fees are needed in order to ensure injured workers can find adequate representation within the workers' compensation system.

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.
