Texas Workers Comp Rates

Texas workers' compensation rates may decrease slightly in 2019.

Texas has made dramatic improvements with regard to the average cost of workers compensation over the past decade. The state has improved from the 12th most expensive to the 36th most expensive state between 2012 and 2018, according to a bi-annual study conducted by the Department of Consumer Business and Services.

Texas is a file and use state for private insurance companies. Therefore, rates vary quite a bit between insurance companies. Employers shopping for lower workers compensation rates are well served to get quotes from 3 or more carriers to ensure they find a company with good rates, credits and discounts for their particular class codes.
