Workers' Comp Coverage for Home Health Agencies

Underwriting concerns related to COVID have caused many insurance companies to tighten their underwriting or exit the industry. Many home health care agencies end up paying higher work comp rates in their State Insurance Fund.

Workers' Compensation Class Codes Related to Home Health

Employees are grouped into classification codes based on what they do for their job. The National Council on Compensation Insurance (NCCI) currently utilizes nearly 800 class codes to help insurance companies categorize employees. Insurance companies create a manual rate for each class code in order to price a policy.

Properly classifying workers is an important part of the quote process. Misclassified home heath agencies may end up overpaying for workers comp coverage. Or they may be reclassified to the correct classification codes during an audit.

Class Code 8835 | Home Health Care- All Employees

Businesses primarily engaged in providing unskilled or skilled nursing services in the homes of individual patients. Services often include personal home health aide services, homemaker and companion care services, physical therapy, medical or social services, medication administration, medical equipment and supplies, counseling, 24-hour home care, occupation and vocational therapy, dietary and nutritional services, speech therapy, audiology, and high-tech care such as intravenous therapy.

Employees in this class code can include registered nurses, LPN's, certified nurses aides, home health aides, social workers and therapists. In most states Class Code 8835 also includes homemaker services and companion care. This includes physical assistance with daily activities such as hygiene, dressing, cooking, eating, housekeeping and organizing medications.

Workers' Comp Covers Home Health Workers

What does workers comp cover?

Workers' comp coverage protects employees when injured. It makes good financial sense for both parties.

Injuries and accidents happen. A workers' comp policy is a no-fault system that pays for these accidents and claims. It's required by law in most states.
  • Loss of income for employees unable to perform job duties
  • Medical expenses for employees injured on the job
  • Retraining expenses for employees unable to return
  • Permanent injury or disability for lasting injuries
  • Survivor benefits if employees are killed on the job

Coverage does not protect employers from everything. Sometimes employees and employers can be negligent.

Workmans comp does not cover negligence
In some instances, workers' compensation coverage will not protect employers or employees from the legal liability resulting from a workplace injury.
  • Injuries resulting from a violation of the law
  • Incidents resulting from employees' use fo drugs or alcohol
  • Injuries that did not occur in connection with the job
  • Clear company policy violations
  • Injuries that did not occur in connection with the job
