Owner Exclusion: Business Owners in North Carolina are generally permitted to exclude themselves from workers' compensation insurance in the state. This is true for every form of business including sole-proprietors, partners, LLC owners, and corporations. Keep in mind that owners who do exclude coverage on themselves will not be covered in the event they are injured on the job. Health insurance also excludes medical coverage for work related injuries because it's designed to be covered un workers comp insurance.

Scheduled Credits: North Carolina law allows private insurance companies to apply scheduled credits up to 25% on a workers compensation policy. This is in addition to any credits given because of a good Experience Modification Rate. Credits are usually given for management experience, no prior claims, and profitability of an account. Employers should always request additional credits when shopping workers compensation quotes.
