Michigan is a unique state because the state allows insurance companies to set their own rates for each workers' compensation class code. Most other states set the rates and allow adjustments via underwriting credits and debits. Michigan has allowed this open competition system since 1983 and it has proven to work well.
Average workers compensation rates in Michigan are about 22% below the median rates for the United States. This means that employers in Michigan are paying less premium for the same class codes as employers in 37 other states.
