What is Workers' Compensation?
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.
New Mexico partners with the National Council on Compensation Insurance (NCCI). NCCI gathers data, analyzes industry trends, and prepares objective insurance rate and loss cost recommendations. NCCI is the nation’s most experienced provider of workers compensation information, tools, and services. New Mexico uses NCCI to determine rates on workers' compensation coverage and to administer the assigned risk for the state. If your business for any reason cannot find coverage on the open market the assigned risk will offer coverage. Coverage in the assigned risk is normally higher than the open market.

You can move forward with your business operations knowing that if one of your employees is injured because of something that happens as a normal part of your business operations, your business is not liable for the costs.
