Our Approach to MA Workers Comp Insurance
Loss Prevention and Risk Management: The surest way to reduce your workers’ comp expense is to not have claims. We believe that up to 90% of claims occur due to unsafe behavior not unsafe conditions. Our loss control services are among the most effective and comprehensive in the area.
Dividend and Discount Programs: Many classes of Massachusetts businesses qualify for rate deviations, dividends, and discount programs. Some classes of business will see discounts as high as 40%!
Claims Management: Our carriers offer fast, efficient, and fair resolution of Massachusetts workers’ comp claims. Our job is to work directly with the policyholder during the claims process and insure that each and every claim is handled fairly. Minimizing claims is the key to preventing increases in future premiums.
Policy Analysis and Premium Recovery: Each client receives a detailed analysis of their current workers’ comp program that outlines credits, modification factors, employee classifications, and claims history. The data can be used to create new cost savings programs AND to check for over charges in past years that can be fully returned to the insured.
Medical Cost Containment: Through the use of return-to-work programs, both direct and indirect costs can be contained. The claim is minimized which reduces costs and the employer gets the added benefit of the employee’s productivity.
Employer Education: Our belief is that too few employers understand the impact their actions can and will have on workers’ compensation costs. Our job is to educate the client and provide the necessary tools to controlling risk and containing cost.

For example, your mod is calculated based on data reported to the rating bureau by past insurers. Incorrect or incomplete data can cause incorrect mod factors.
