WA Rates for Select Work Comp Class Codes

As of 2019, Washington is one of four monopolistic states left in the United States. NCCI state rules and manuals do not apply in Washington. This means that all rates are set by the state and that private insurance companies are not permitted to compete in the state. We often help Washington employers find workers compensation coverage in other states when they hire out of state employee to perform work in other states.

Class Code Low Rate High Rate

Workers compensation rates are regulated by the Washington Department of Labor and Industries and they act as the exclusive State Fund insurance carrier. Employers doing business with one or more employee are required to carry workers compensation coverage in Washington. We are a national insurance firm specializing in workers compensation and general liability insurance.
