Common Areas of Overspending on Workers’ Compensation

Businesses are always at risk of overspending on workers’ compensation insurance. Making sure your coverage and premium match is critical. However, when an insurer performs an audit, how do you know if it’s correct? Our team conducts an audit of our own before the insurance company to ensure the numbers match. Without this comparison, businesses can end up overpaying on workers’ compensation insurance for reasons that include:

  • Incorrect payroll audits
  • Incorrect classifications
  • Not deducting eligible payments like tips and overtime from payroll
  • Missing workers comp credits

Why Work With Navigator Risk Management?

Like any insurance, workers’ compensation rates are mainly determined by company history and the cost to compensate in the event of a claim. We focus on three main areas of your business to prepare you for insurance audits to ensure accurate information about your business is considered when determining coverage costs.

These Areas Are:
Experience Modification Factor

Your experience modification factor is calculated to help determine your premium. It shows how your company's workers' comp claims experience compares to other organizations that are similar in size and industry. Anything above 1.0 means you are higher than your peers. A higher number means additional surcharges, so it's critical to ensure this number is accurate compared to an insurer’s findings.

Payroll Audit Preparation

How much you pay employees during a policy coverage period factors into how much your policy will cost. Any mistakes in this audit can drive up the cost of your insurance. We can perform an audit of our own before the insurance company does theirs to ensure their findings and premium quote are accurate.

Back Audits

If you're a new client of ours, we can go back a few years and audit previous policies. It's not uncommon to find errors where a business has overpaid, and we can work to recoup the money if you were overcharged on past policies.
