In most states, workers' compensation insurance is required for companies with one or more employees. States typically enforce penalties for employers who do not have workers' compensation insurance. Contact us for help determining what your states requirements are.
Workers' compensation insurance pricing is based on: carrier defined rates, your payroll, the number and job classifications of the employees, classification of your business and past loss experience. As the employer, you are responsible to pay for the cost of workers' compensation premiums.
Workers' compensation insurance generally pays for the rehabilitation, recovery or medical bills of employees' work-related injuries, as well as lost time due to a work-related injury. Workers' compensation insurance is not a substitute for health or medical insurance — employees are only covered for on-the-job injuries.
The answer to this question is complicated and depends on several factors. Contact us and a licensed APDIA agent will be able to help you.
Direct billing is an option for clients that prefer to receive a bill for their workers' compensation premiums that comes directly from their insurance carrier.
Additional insureds are third-party entities that were not originally named on your workers' compensation policy, and cannot be added. This is because your workers' compensation policy is intended to cover your employees only. However, additional insured endorsements can be included in general liability policies.
Please notify ADPIA about any modifications made to your business operations, including (but not limited to) changes to:
All workers' compensation policies are subject to audit by the carrier as per the terms of your policy. You may be required to participate in an end-of-policy term audit to confirm the accuracy of your premiums and coverage. If so, your carrier will contact you within 30-60 days of your policy expiration to arrange the audit. Rest assured that ADPIA is here to help you through the audit process. Prior to contacting us for assistance, please have the following documents handy:
The audit must be completed by an authorized representative of your business. ADPIA can help by providing copies of reports and answering questions related to the audit process, but ADPIA does not perform the audit.
1 While premium deposits may be eliminated with most carriers, mandatory state assessment fees may be required in some states.
2 While Pay-by-Pay may reduce the administrative burden of the annual audit, the carrier reserves the right to perform a more in-depth audit, as outlined in your policy documents.
