These rates are low partially because of the fact Utah has a Workers Compensation Fund (WCF) who controls 57 percent of the insurance market in the state. The fund is able to control prices because the second biggest provider controls only 3 percent of the remaining market. This brings about immense competition and keeps prices low for Utah employers.
