WORKERS' COMPENSATION REDUCTION AUDIT
70% of ALL employers have overpaid on their workers' compensation premium costs. 7 out of 10 audits we perform, lead to some sort of recovery.
ACHEIVE SAVINGS WITH YOUR EXISTING PROVIDER
Workers' Compensation insurance is a major cost for businesses. History indicates most companies are unaware that they are paying more on past and current premiums then they should. This holds true regardless of the agent, broker and/or insurance carriers involved.
This industry includes many working parts burdened with errors, costing businesses tremendous amounts of money. It is generally unknown that overpayments can be recovered from previously issued policies.
Our team performs a review to determine if there is a significant opportunity for a lower rated classification, as they are typically determined by insurance company underwriters.
The Workers’ Compensation audit specializes in identifying premium overcharges, obtaining refunds and reducing premium cost for clients on a contingency fee basis. We will not switch your current provider. This is simply an audit review that will either lead to some sort of recovery of funds for errors that were found OR you will receive a free audit to know that everything has been done correctly.
We work with companies paying an average of $40,000 or more per year in premiums. Audits can be conducted in all states with the exception of the monopolistic states (WA, WY, ND & OH).

Insurance companies want to be sure the rules and regulations as mandated by the state department of insurance or the states Worker’s Compensation laws are followed. Our review will confirm the insurance company’s compliance with these rules and regulations.
